Our world presents many opportunities for illness, not all of which can be modulated by food choice. I noted this obit in today's Times with sadness. I wrote about this dilemma in an earlier RTR post: http://www.refusetoregain.com/2011/03/the-perfect-diet-does-it-exist.html So: why work on perfecting your diet? Because the improvement in health for most is very worth it. And because it just feels SO good.
