DECIPHER THIS PERPLEXING PUZZLE AND WIN A PRIZE

THE TRIPLE BYPASS

We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic. Children have
never been fatter. Why is that?

GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS

The GOOD news is that FIFTEEN percent of adults between the
ages of 20 and 40 have HEALTHY hearts. The other 85 percent
have severe atherosclerosis, and most are not even aware of
it. (New England Journal of Medicine, 1998, Volume 338, page
1650).

The good news is that twenty-five percent of children
attending kindergarten through eighth grades do not have
clinical signs of heart disease. (American Journal of
Medical Science, 1995, Volume 310, page 22). The other
seventy-five percent are very sick little boys and girls.
They will grow up to become even sicker adults. Their
parents are more than just clueless. Their parents are to
blame.

CAN YOU FIGURE THIS ONE OUT?

A newly published report reveals that retail sales of butter
increased thirty-two percent from 1999 to 2000.

DAIRY PROPAGANDA CONTINUES

The spokesperson let it be known that the consumption of
increased amounts of animal fat is a positive dietary change
for consumers. Meg Hargreaves said:

"Americans are coming out of the 'fear of fat' trend of the
late 90's and have come to see that fat is a necessary part
of a healthy diet."

For your review. The entire amazing press release:

COULD DIET BE A CLUE?

In 1970, the average American ate ten pounds of fat-filled
cheese. This delicious food is actually concentrated milk
(ten pounds of milk are required to produce one pound of
hard cheese). Cheese is saturated with substances that may
not do the heart any good. Things like cholesterol and
enormous amounts of animal fat. In 2002, the average
American will eat 31 pounds of cheese.

The United States Department of Agriculture, whose role it
is to promote agriculture products, conducts conferences
relating to America's obesity epidemic. Guess who is not
invited to speak? (Hint: he writes a daily NOTMILK column).

The increased amounts of concentrated dairy products,
cheese, butter, and ice cream are at the very heart of
American's cardiovascular problems.

The solution? A triple bypass.

BYPASS dairy-sponsored propaganda. That includes milk
mustache ads and magazines dispensing such healthy advice.
Cancel your subscriptions, and let the editors know why.

BYPASS the advice of those who would market these dangerous
products to you and your kids. That includes your doctors,
who have little or no training in nutrition. After you find
a new physician, let your ex-so-called healer know the
reason he or she was replaced.

BYPASS the dairy section of your supermarket.

Have you deciphered the puzzle yet? If so, you've won the
best prize in the world. There is nothing that can replace
good health. Once you lose it, no amount of money can buy it
back.
