Forty years ago there was a Woody Allen movie, Sleeper, in which McDonald's burgers and Coke were health-foods.
Based on my experience, this may be time to take the movie message seriously. At age 73, I had a heart attack. Other than some modest family evidence there is no reason to expect such an event for me. My doctor, who is famous, sees no prior evidence.
The reason I related to the issue of health is that, post heart attack, there is virtually nothing for me to change in my behavior. I have been a prolific exerciser, running five days a week for 30 years and swimming ever since. I have been eating a spa diet for 40 years and even eliminated eggs for most of that time when they were considered a source of human cholesterol (Not). Virtually everything else I have done meets the ultra-healthy requirements including low alcohol intake and plenty of sunshine.
There is no change of behavior available at this point, post-heart attack. I am relying on the generic versions of Lipitor and Plavix to deal with the plaque that was evident in my heart arteries when the doctors put a catheter in to look.
I'm afraid that if you think healthy behavior (including composting) will somehow result in
health benefits, I am here to tell you that that may not be reasonable.
From my vantage point the standard health benefits of exercise and spa diet can result in positive energy and a clear mind. For me, that has always been sufficient. It is probably all that is reasonable to expect.
This may not be the most cheerful upbeat blog but if you were to continue your life eating and exercising under the misapprehension that you would benefit from health and longevity...... you may end up regretting many years of wasted activity.
On the other hand, I personally have always felt the reward of exercise was sufficient in itself and the same is true for a reasonable body weight.
