where do you go

im always reading top 10 lists
you know like daves top 10 list
like today i saw a top 10 list of things not to eat
i wont write about that today but
in a semi-related list i found this morning on yahoo
i will write about it

as ive gotten more involved in reading about alzheimers disease
i realize that what we eat especially throughout our lifetime may
make a difference and whether we get alzheimers disease or not

its recommended that we eat a mediterranean diet
vegetables fruits nuts lean meats fish olive oil red wine in moderation
then couple that with exercise controlling your blood pressure
controlling your cholesterol controlling your diabetes
all this can go a long way to not getting or slowing down getting or
getting a mild form of alzheimers disease

this approach to life mixed with adequate restful sleep controlling
depression being happy and being mentally active all your life
helps also

this approach also appears to be the treatment and prevention of
a lot of other diseases
heart disease stroke diabetes cancer high blood pressure cholesterol
diabetes osteoarthritis symptoms

so here is the list
of the 10 most visited popular stores

some on the list speak for themselves
so maybe if you want to live longer you might avoid this list
except for target and maybe walmart

10   target
9     taco bell
8     cvs
7     walgreens
6     wendys
5     starbucks
4     burger king
3     subway
2     walmart
1     mcdonalds

so target is not bad for your health i dont think
it interesting that 4 on the list have pharmacies
we in america do love our drugs dont we
some of those are not good for your health

i looked at the list
ive been to target maybe once last year
ive been to walmart several times for various items but not for food
they do have mcdonalds in the one i go to

i dont go to walgreens or cvs anymore since i get my prescriptions
at costco every 6 months so i go there only twice a year

ive been to mcdonalds several times but it was to use the bathroom
but never to eat there

i never go to starbucks since i found out about the latte factor
price of latte x numbers bought in year x 20 years
$5x250x20=$25000 if invested would be worth $52000+-

i guess if you go to subway and eat like jason does thats ok
i usually eat their veggie sandwich

remember the guy that did the movie about eating at mcdonalds
every day for a month and he gained all that weight
it could easily have been at the other ones on this list

of course taco bell doesnt have a lean cuisine either

so its possible if you look at this list and stay away from them
well not walmart or target
unless you eat there
you might live a longer and healthier and richer life
