How Man's Health Deteriorated

This is a satirical account of how Man's health deteriorated over the years due to his unhealthy food choices and passive lifestyle. The presentation may be funny, but I find a lot of truth in it.

Here goes.....

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, and Krispy Creme Donuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" And Woman said, "As long as you are at it, add some sprinkles!" And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.

And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from wheat, and sugar from cane, and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to 14.

So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side. And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast. 

God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetable and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken fried-steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof.

God created a light fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake," and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food."

God brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained more pounds.

God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy center into chips and deep-fried them. And Man added more extra pounds.

God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And super size them!" And Man went into cardiac arrest!

End of account.....

The lesson here is that the state of our health is very much in our hands. It is just a matter of using the free will that God has granted us to make the best choices in every situation, including the foods we eat and the lifestyle we lead.
