Brain Food?

Postby Slava » Fri Jul 11, 2008 5:32 pm

In a local advertising newspaper, there was a column on how to lose weight and keep it off. One item suggested avoiding things in aluminum cans, because:

"Aluminum can be absorbed by your colon and many nervous system disorders...are linked to excessive aluminum in delicate brain tissue."

Are they telling me I have my head up my you-know-what?

Careful, or I'll pop my top. Or are you just pulling my tab?

In your case we'll assume the aluminum is being absorbed and redistributed by your circulatory system.

However, I remember a comic years ago saying that President Reagan " ... had a pre-cancerous growth removed from his nose and an polyp removed from his colon. Does this tell you where this man's head is?"

:lol:

No fear. Aluminum is just Munimula spelled backwards. (Anyone remember Ruff and Ready?)

Medical references sound more imposing with the British version: aluminium.


Link to American Heritage Dictionary -- heh heh heh



Ruff and Ready isn't ringing any bells. But then, I've drunk my share of carbonated beverages from aluminium cans, so I may have just forgotten them...

That's food for thought.

Yes, I do, and I remember Munimula, but for some reason I thought it was from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

So much for my memory ...
