On Facebook this morning, I read a link about the perils of sugar. I now can add that to my knowledge about evil carbs, too much or too little protein, the dangers of fat around the middle (and everywhere else), and how diet soda creates mutant cells, and so on.
In the category of stuff that’s bad for you, how come no one mentions the news? I’ve taken to checking in with CNN.com first thing in the morning. The headlines are always alarming, and I wonder about opening my brain to them, even before I’ve fully woken up.
