    Every day I eat 10 apples and immediately go to the psychologist’s office to watch them get blasted 20 feet into the drywall after being exposed to my ultraviolet auro.

    Are we sure the relationship doesn’t go the other way? People suffering from more anxiety, etc. choose savory snacks and those enjoying mental well-being and stability are more likely to choose fruit? Just curious.

      The question, as always, is which came first. In general people love excuses and fast to embrace playing victim. Success in life is a choice, and much of why we feel depressed, angry or emotionally unhinged has to do with unresolved pain from the past.
      Answer for yourself: who hurt you?
      And then forgive them all, and let the healing begin.

    Indeed, I like apples, but why are most apples the wife buys now are so tough and knot heads?

      About 15 years ago, I read an article in a national trade magazine for apple growers which was about the planned discontinuing of apple varieties, like Jonathan apples, that had been around for a century. Why? Because university farms no longer got royalty payments on them. So the solution? Phase them out and replace them with recently developed varieties. Jonathan was my favorite apple – not too sweet. But the pressure today is on sweeter and sweeter fruit (which might be good at first bite, but tastes too sweet when you eat more), and more durable fruit (ships well, stores well, but tastes like cardboard – the Red Delicious). Yes, some old varieties, like Red and Golden Delicious apples were kept. The Golden Delicious is a good variety but even it is beginning to disappear.

    Being healthy and physically fit in general leads to happiness, but it takes work. Most are just too lazy and undisciplined to expend effort to achieve, so they pop pills instead for an inferior result.
    We do it to ourselves folks! Most prefer the delusion of playing victim over the reality of personal responsibility. Life is governed by choice – oh no, not me!

    The problem with greater than 90% of ALL research is that the conclusions aren’t supported by the data. This is according to Stanford’s Dr. John Ioannidis, widely considered the foremost authority on analyzing research. (See “Lies, Damned Lies, and Medical Science” in the August 2010 edition of “The Atlantic”.)

    “Science is a noble endeavor, but it’s also a low-yield endeavor. I’m not sure that more than a very small percentage of medical research is ever likely to lead to major improvements in clinical outcomes and quality of life.”
    –John Ioannidis

    Put simply, put this research and the vast majority of all the rest in the “hold” bin. It’s likely to be
    debunked in the future

    There are older white papers that clearly showed healthy habits reduce stress and depression, I believe one of the researchers said that “There is no silver bullet but taking care of one’s self helps”.

    Beware of the pesticide laden fruits and vegetables. If people only knew what they were eating
