On Eating..

Now that the month of Ramadhan is over for Muslims (the month when they do not eat or drink from dawn to dusk), there is a tendency for many to do the opposite!

I feel its timely to highlight 2 quotes which come out from my previous blog entries:

“I saw few die of hunger; of eating, a hundred thousand.”

Benjamin FranklinBenjamin Franklin
Yes, the perils of over-eating….obesity,raised blood cholesterol,the surfacing of diabetes…the list goes on.
The second quote (my favorite, but not necessarily those of my doctor colleagues!):
Found on a Hieroglyph, from an ancient Egyptian tomb

“One quarter of what you eat keeps you alive.  The other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive”.
