Would you like a Lipitor with your fries?

Would you like a Lipitor with your fries?

From "Can a statin neutralize the cardiovascular risk of unhealthy dietary choices?"
Fast food outlets already offer free condiments to supplement meals. A free statin-containing accompaniment would offer cardiovascular benefits, opposite to the effects of equally available salt, sugar, and high-fat condiments.
Other ideas could include free insulin shots, Zantac, and and side of Tums.  Plus, a children's aspirin to keep handy, just in case of a tight feeling in the chest.

What about all the inflammation from too many Omega-6s and not enough 3s?  NSAIDs to the rescue here.  Maybe a fish oil capsule or Smart Balance fried fries?*

I almost forgot, we must combat the acid/base imbalance caused by too much grain, cheese, and meat without any veggies and fruits to balance things out! The meal needs some Greens Plus or Superfood, too! 

In the exercise realm, we see muscle wasting and bone loss in the elderly and infirm.  These conditions can be helped by vibration plates and electric shock devices (or so I'm told).  Why not bring these to the table for all people, too?  In fact, just make the fast food tables vibrate.

Back to reality...  These goofballs made comparisons to helmets and filters, and I cannot say their logic is totally wrong with their statements and "suggestions," but this should be a shocking call to arms for everybody who cares about the state of health and wellness in our world -- rather than take responsibility for our own health, would we let the fast food hawkers take responsibility for covering up our symptoms?

I know it seems like something that would never happen, but look around at the news.  Not a month goes by where we don't shake our heads at something that "would never happen."

* I double-plus kid, since Smart Balance is only thought to be good for you. It's not.  Not at all.
