Sugar is bad for you, bread is bad for you, so too are butter and eggs
A sedentary lifestyle is bad for your health, but running is bad for your legs
Low fat is bad for you; no fat is bad for you, fat in the whole is taboo
Too much sun will destroy your skin, but sun screen is bad for you too
Flying is bad for you, frying is bad for you, fizzy drinks rot your insides
Fruit and veg are the best you can eat but they’re covered in pesticides
Sleeping is bad for you, breathing is bad for you, bad things in all that you do
The practice of being alive we found is ostensibly bad for you
In time exercise and too much fruit and vedge will be found to be a major contributor to some form of something or other that will undoubtedly shorten your life.

Everything’s bad for you!
