An apple a day …

Other people’s words

Vitamins are good, but if you have access to adequate amounts of real food and a bit of sun, you’ll likely get all the vitamins your body needs. There is no pill to cancel out smoking, inactivity or drinking a bottle of whisky a day. Fresh produce drenches your cells in things we can’t bottle. The truth is pedestrian: if you want to live well and long, be born in the right place and time, cross your fingers, eat lots of vegetables, and go for a walk. The miracle cures almost always turn out to be lollies or poison.
From ‘The Medicine

What I like best about this quote?
This:

Be born in the right place and time, cross your fingers.

Health isn’t always about discipline or control.
Isn’t it hubris to think otherwise?
