And God populated the earth with broccoli and cauliflower and
spinach and green and yellow vegetables of all kinds, so Man
and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

And Satan created McDonald's. And McDonald's brought forth the
99-cent double-cheeseburger. And Satan said to Man, "You want
fries with that?" And Man said, "Super size them."
And Man gained pounds.

And God created the healthful yogurt, that woman might keep
her figure that man found so fair.

And Satan froze the yogurt, and he brought forth chocolate,
nuts and brightly colored sprinkle candy to put on the yogurt.
And woman gained pounds.

And God said, "Try my crispy fresh salad."

And Satan brought forth creamy dressings, bacon bits, and
shredded cheese. And there was ice cream for dessert.
And man and woman gained pounds.

And God said, "I have sent your heart healthy vegetables
and olive oil with which to cook them."

And Satan brought forth chicken-fried steak so big it needed
its own platter.

And Man gained pounds, and his bad cholesterol went through
the roof.

And God brought forth running shoes, and Man resolved to lose
those extra pounds.

And Satan brought forth cable TV with remote control so Man
would not have to toil to change channels between ESPN and ESPN2.
And Man gained pounds.

And God said, "You're running up the score, Devil."

And God brought forth the potato, a vegetable naturally low
in fat and brimming with nutrition.

And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy
center into chips and deep fat fried them. And he created sour
cream dip also. And Man clutched his remote control and ate the
potato chips swaddled in cholesterol.

And Satan saw and said, "It is good."

And Man went into cardiac arrest.

And God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery...

And Satan created HMOs

If we are what we eat then nearly the whole lot of us are in trouble. Just read that Cuba has the largest % of gardens of any country here in our hemisphere. Their 'Urban' gardens represent a big piece of their fresh produce source. Poor folks eat better than we do here in the land of plenty.
