You’ve probably heard about the man who dug an old coat out of his closet that he hadn't worn for about 14 years. Inside the jacket pocket he found a hamburger that looked like it had been made that day. 

Two young ladies went a step further and did a four-year science project using hamburgers that they had purchased at a fast food restaurant. The results were the same; the burgers looked just like ones that had been bought that same day.

Needless to say, the young girls are on their way to a science fair and taking the results of their hard work on their project with them.

A freshly made burger bun took on mold as green as grass because it lacked all the preservatives that the hamburger contained. What does that tell us—that if we eat the food with all the preservatives, it will help us live forever? I don't think so. How much of the food we buy at fast food places is actual food, and how much is preservatives?

I noticed when I had an overabundance of bread on hand that one kind of loaf stayed nice and soft and mold-free, while one loaf picked up mold in just a couple of days.

Have you ever had a loaf of bread with just a speck of mold that you could pick off and wondered if it was safe to eat? The answer is no. The roots of the mold may have spread through the entire loaf. Throw it away.

I've said it before, and I will say it again. Much as we love the taste of sugar-laden products that put fat on our bones, so does cancer. Cancer thrives on sugar or sugar derivatives.

It has been said if sugar were introduced today it would be considered a drug because of its characteristics and the damage it causes.

Alcohol disturbs me. Have you noticed how often the characters on television are having a drink of an alcoholic beverage? I have, and when I do I often turn the program off.

I think that it is better to stick to nice clear, clean water that is less costly and tasty, which I also have things to say about, but that is another story.
