Dear FPT Readers,
IaM is confounded by the recent interest taken in my column. I had no idea that you blubbos would take any interest in that which I have to say, and would take any initiative towards losing the 75 pounds that you need to lose. Well, IaM is glad to have you aboard.
Today is Point/Counter-Point with the FPT. The food stuffs of which the FPT babbles lead to weight-gain and the possiblity of diabetes.
Let me begin with the dangers of processed foods: Brian in Collections died this year at the age of 51. Many FPT readers might ask why he died at such a young age. IaM explain. It was because he was of the largess and powered the salty snacks all the time. He was a known diabetic, but that did not stop him from eating "foods" he should not have been eating. A glucose level over 100 is trouble. Diabetes is a disease, the cause of which is "insulin intolerance." Insulin is a hormone, and enables the cells in the body to accept glucose and burn it (for energy, like college football). Insulin intolerance is generally caused by powering "foods" that the body is not used to. By that, I mean foods that the body has not seen, except for those within the last 50 years out of its 500,000 years of existence or so.
I could get further into that, but contact kiwi for more details. In closing I say that the human body is not used to such things as High Fructose Corn Syrup, Partially Hydrogenated Oils, and so forth.
FPT Counterpoint: We respect your info - and am sorry that your friend passed. However, there is such a thing as being large and healthy. Everyone is different - and they should eat accordingly. There are many things in our culture besides food that can be abused and lead to health issues.
