Society

Hey there. I was in a discussion with a friend about her lunch and she was discussing with some of her colleagues on whether eating fruit before or after a meal is more beneficial than the other. I told her that I remember reading somewhere that eating fruit a good 15 - 30 mins after a meal aids digestion. She said that she remembered someone saying to eat fruit before to help you feel full.

This made me think for a second and went on to say that society now a days, doesn't know what good for them. You read about all kinds of shit online, see all types of ads on TV, either promoting or demoting products. I expressed this thought to her using a runner as an example. Doctors and what not say that it's beneficial to run, better circulation, good exercise. But, you also hear the opposite side of that, running puts a heavy strain on knees and feet, and to a lesser extent, causes fatigue. She laughed. She told me that she sees my point, stating how she wanted to join a cycling class to help strengthen her knee, since she has a bum knee. Her husband, on the other hand, thought it as a terrible idea, because... she has a bum knee.

Proteins are good, proteins are bad... Carbs are good, carbs are bad... then there's the ultimate... "medicinal" marijuana is good, marijuana is bad. C'mon people. Who are we to believe in this day and age? Before you know it... we'll start hearing that food is bad, causes fatness and obesity. 2 mins later, we'll hear that food is great, provides the nutrients that a "growing" body needs. WTF?!?!!?

You just can't trust what you see or hear anywhere anymore. lol Until I decide what to believe, later.
