Wealth and booze

Master Rouse has tagged me with... well, it's not really a meme as such, but it is to express one's themes for 2008. Mike has chosen "Health and Wealth", two aims that I am sure that most people would choose.

However, you will never find me in a fucking gym, so it is wealth that concerns me most, and so that will—hopefully—be the theme for 2008. One can but try anyway!

I was going to go for Health and espouse the idea that, just possibly, I should drink rather less than I have this year, but then I discovered that it's just not necessary!
A cheap and readily available drug could reverse severe liver disease, even in patients who find it impossible to give up booze, research suggests.

Sulfasalazine is currently used to treat arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

But a University of Newcastle team has found that it can also reverse the scarring associated with cirrhosis of the liver.

As Timmy says,
Decent present for the New Year, ain’t it?

Damn straight! And besides, what is the point of wealth if you cannot afford to drink quality alcohol, eh?

As for this blog... well... I am thinking that I should stop sitting on the fence so much...

With gym prices these days, "health and wealth" is almost an oxymoron!

If you want to improve your health, I highly recommend "Natural Cures 'They' Don't Want You to Know About" or "The 100 Year Lie". Excellent reads, both of them.
