I've Crashed in the Andes and I'm Hungry!

Most of us older folk remember the book Alive, The Story of the Andes Survivors which describes the harrowing (and true) story of a Uraguayan Air Force plane carrying a rugby team that crashed in the Andes mountains in 1972.

As you may remember, the survivors had no food, and over a period of time began to starve.  Eventually, they had to dine on the dead bodies from the crash to survive.  It's an amazing and horrific story of survival in the most dire situation possible.

Sometimes I like to use this story to pose an interesting (and quite amusing) health question.  The next time you're in a large group setting, look around the room and imagine you're the only survivor of a plane crash, and the other unfortunate passengers are the people who are in the room with you.  After a bit of time, you have to consider the unthinkable, just as the survivors of the Andes crash did.  Now here's the question:

Who are you going to eat first?

All joking aside, you're probably going to dine on the healthiest person in the room first.  Let's face it, something inside your brain tells you that eating the guy who has the beer belly and smokes two packs a day isn't the best choice.  Instead, you'd probably go for the guy that takes good care of himself and rarely gets sick.  He perhaps runs a 5K every now and then, or at least works out regularly.  I'd bet that if you look around the room, you can pick your meal in less than 10 seconds.

Sadly, most of us don't bother to do this when we're shopping for food.  We'll go to the store, head for the meat section, and grab whatever pre-packaged selection is available that particular day.  Of course, we have no idea if the cow, pig or chicken that this particular product came from was healthy or not.  If the product we're buying is from a typical large chain grocer, you can pretty much guarantee it's the animal equivalent of our unhealthy friend that smokes too much (and probably far, far worse).

We suggest that you check out your food sources.  Next time you're shopping, make note of the different meat and chicken producers.  Check out their various websites, and investigate whether or not the animals they raise are healthy.  This means that cows are grass fed and raised without hormones or antibiotics.  Chickens should be organic, free range and dine on insects as much as possible.  Ideally, know the farmer that raises your food, and see the animals that you will eventually eat and make sure that they are healthy and thriving.

Your very survival depends on it!
