DailyDirt: Food That's Good For You... Maybe?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

You are what you eat, so they say. But it's not always so easy to figure out whether food is "good" or "bad" -- just look up the history of margarine. Still, everybody's gotta eat, so we might as well try to look for healthy stuff to ingest. Here are a few interesting tidbits to munch on. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Millions of peaches. Peaches for me. Millions of peaches. Peaches for free. Look out!

    For some unknown reason that song irritates me to no end.

    Re: [Peaches]x10^6

    Gwiz,

    I agree the song can get annoying -- probably b/c it's played with on a basitar and guitbass -- a 3-string guitar and a 2-string bass.

    Or maybe it's just an annoyingly repetitious song.

    Well, that's intreasting..I didn't know that.

    And, yeah, the repetition is very annoying and the fact that lyrics seem to make very little sense to me doesn't help either..lol.

    Well . . . I know who a girl who reminds me of Cher, she's always changing the color of her hair, she don't use nothing that you buy at the store, she likes her hair to be real orange; she uses tangerines.

    PETA

    I saw PETA and meat and thought it was about People Eating Tasty Animals.

    I don't think I'm ready for yogurt-meat.

    Not all fruits are created equal

    > are counted as fruits and vegetables according to
    > the USDA.

    This is the stuff that diabetes epidemics are made of.

    In general, processed foods are problematic because of
    all of the stuff that is destroyed during processing and
    all of the other stuff that ends up added back in.

    Conflating fruits or vegetables with food-like substances
    is a dangerous sort of thing that completely short circuits
    the whole point of the government trying to be a busy body.

    Fruit juice and French fries...
