We wouldn't want to kill the birds!

I came across this quote and I love it:

Half the modern drugs could well be thrown out the window, except that the birds might eat them.  ~Martin H. Fischer

I have to take my malaria pill today and I must say that I totally agree with this Martin H. Fischer character. I hate taking pills and would rather just let my body fight things on its own. But alas, Cornell travel nurses convinced me otherwise...

Here are a couple other quotes that interest me since I am living in one of the Wellness capitals of the world:

Nothing is more fatal to Health, than an over Care of it.  ~Benjamin Franklin

The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd druther not.  ~Mark Twain

Those obsessed with health are not healthy; the first requisite of good health is a certain calculated carelessness about oneself.  ~Sydney J. Harris

I am not sure what I think yet about these quotes. There is a lot of cynicism floating around on these websites and I'm too jaded by the Nosara Health Nuts to have a real opinion! A horrible thing to admit!

Not a horrible thing to admit at all. Health "optimization" and what not is big business these days, and I think a little cynicism is a good thing to have.
