Herald Health Tips
This past week the Miami Herald’s “Diet and Nutrition” page featured a “Nutrition Quiz” that touted the benefits of niacin. These include raising “good” HDL cholesterol by as much as 35% -- “plus, it purportedly helps your skin and hair”. What specific foods does this quiz -- which “purportedly” is geared towards steering readers towards better health -- recommend as being healthy because of high niacin content? Cheerios, Snickers, instant coffee, chicken liver, braised moose liver and KFC original recipe breast meat. The idea is, I suppose, that after dying prematurely from eating all of these horrible foods, as family and friends file past your open casket they will marvel on how great your skin and hair look.
