I often wish that the only thing I had to worry about when considering what to eat for lunch or whether or not I’ll accept a treat offered by a friend or colleague is whether it will add an inch to my waistline.
Lots of people obsess about what they eat, but for many of them it is only a matter of general health or the desire for a trim figure that forces their obsession. But, for some of us, it’s a potential matter of life or death.
