It is your food…..

“Last year we passed in our Congress this giant Medicare entitlement prescription drug bill… And it’s going to cost literally trillions and trillions of dollars. And while they were debating this, nobody ever stood up and said, ‘Excuse me, but why are we so sick?’ Could it be that we eat like Caligula? You know the top five of these prescription drugs that are so popular, they’re all antacids, anti-bloating medicines, digestive aids, all things to put out the fire in our stomach from the poison we call lunch.

Folks, it’s the food. I know that people hate to hear that. But when you look at those ads on the evening news at night, people farting and burping and bloating, it’s all shit trying to get out of you. Take a hint…

You’re not going to die from secondhand smoke, or SARS, or monkey pox. It’s the food. The call is coming from inside the house. The killer is not West Nile or Avian Flu or shark attacks. It’s the buffalo wings. It’s the aspartame and NutraSweet, and the red dye number two and the high fructose corn syrup and the MSG and the chlorine and whatever shit is in special sauce.” Comedian Bill Maher in his 2005 HBO stand-up special
