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!

El Legans abochorna a un Madrid en colapso

El Legans abochorna a un Madrid en colapso

La gran actuacin del portero Champagne y el gol de Gabriel Pires deja al real madrid 2018 camiseta fuera de las semifinales de la Copa del ReyDebate: Debe destituir el Real Madrid a Zidane?La 'bomba' del Legans... en el jacuzzi del vestuario blancoEl Legans vino a coronar en el Bernabu cinco meses de derrumbe del Real Madrid, en uno de los colapsos ms aparatosos que el ftbol ha visto en los ltimos tiempos. El bloque multiganador de Ancelotti se vino abajo en febrero de 2015, pero es que el equipo de Zidane lleva despendose desde septiembre, cuando un par de tropiezos ligueros le animaron a renunciar muy pronto a la defensa de uno de sus cinco ttulos del ao pasado. En la noche del mircoles, arruinado en el campeonato de la regularidad, se hundi tambin en la Copa, la va quiz ms directa que tena a estas alturas para visitar Cibeles en primavera. Perdi en su estadio, una fortaleza convertida ahora en patio de recreo para los rivales, sean de la entidad que sean. El Legans gan y expuls al Madrid bajo el disgusto y asombro de una aficin poco preparada para semejante debacle. Le queda la Champions, con el PSG asomando en tres semanas, en eliminatoria convertida, ahora s o s, en llave de paso del curso.[Narracin y estadsticas (1-2)]Fracas la apuesta de Zidane con su bloque de suplentes, que ya haba dado serios avisos de inconsistencia durante la temporada. Ante el Legans haba piezas titulares tambin, pero con el gotero an puesto y en tiernas recuperaciones, como Ramos y Benzema. La seriedad del equipo de Garitano devor a un Madrid blando y sin tino, con la eliminatoria cogida por alfileres. El tcnico vasco comparti banquillo con Pepe Bordals hace ms de una dcada en el Alicante, donde salieron campeones de su grupo de Segunda B. Ahora ambos por separado estn en Primera al mando de dos de los equipos ms trabajados, incmodos y fajadores de la categora: Getafe y Legans, vecinos de la M50, con trazas similares, apretaditos de lneas, esforzados los 90 minutos y capaces de resistir una semana en el desierto con media cantimplora. Un dolor de muelas que el Real Madrid ha podido comprobar con los pepineros en esta eliminatoria copera con mucho ms fuste de lo que el sorteo poda sugerir al hincha blanco ms confiado. Si hace una semana sac de Butarque una victoria prrica en noche de espesura, lo del partido de vuelta no fue mucho mejor. Al descanso, el combinado mixto de titulares y suplentes que Zidane plant en el csped se march bajo la merecida pitada de un Bernabu que no gana para sustos esta temporada. La goleada del Deportivo se olvid en 45 minutos de imprecisiones, aspirantes que siguen sin decir casi nada y la fragilidad defensiva habitual en los ltimos meses. No necesitan mucho los rivales para ver portera ante el Madrid, de ese Deportivo sin cuerpo que se puso por delante el domingo a este Legans que vive de la brega en la medular. Ah, la red de Garitano ahog a Llorente y Kovacic, uno acumulando prdidas y el croata gastando ms energas en correr hacia atrs que en llevar la pelota hacia el rea de Champagne. Por las bandas, lo habitual en este tipo de partidos coperos. Theo y Achraf volvieron a aportar ms atropello y descontrol que profundidad. El marroqu llega con garbo a la lnea de fondo pero le pesa el baln a la hora de centrar. El chico, quiz nervioso, no puso un centro en condiciones. Su colega en el costado zurdo s parece sobrado de confianza, pero casi siempre va ms rpido que el baln, que se le queda atrs y le grita dnde vas. Resulta desconcertante para pblico y, lo que es peor, sus compaeros. Y as, escaso juego puede sacar el ataque de los laterales.Benzema, cabizbajo, tras la derrota de los blancos. Javier SorianoAFPEl Legans presionaba y presionaba, sin que Isco pudiera recibir limpio y Asensio se agotaba cambindose de banda, seco. Los cinco minutos de inicio, intenso el Madrid (hasta Benzema corri hacia atrs para una recuperacin), se esfumaron pronto bajo la marcial colocacin de los visitantes, incansables como lobos tras la pelota. La presin causaba estragos en Achraf y Llorente, con prdidas constantes que dejaban al Madrid a medio vestir. En una cesin atribulada del carrilero a Nacho, lleg el 0-1. El central err al intentar controlar el peligroso pase fuerte y a media altura. No despej, control mal y dej en pies de Eraso, elegante en el golpeo a la escuadra de Kiko Casilla. Un golazo desde fuera del rea. A este Madrid que trata de salir de la gripe le sent como un tiro el gol que igualaba la eliminatoria y desplegaba por el Bernabu todos los fantasmas coperos de siempre. La trayectoria en el actual torneo tampoco ayudaba a la tranquilidad (empates con el Fuenlabrada y Numancia). El cosquilleo del pnico se desat con una media chilena de Beauvue en las puertas del descanso. Se march al lateral de la red de Casilla.La buena resolucin de Benzema, por encima del portero, para empatar al comienzo de la segunda parte qued en nada pocos minutos despus, cuando Gabriel clav al Madrid un violento cabezazo a la salida de un crner. No se aburre esta temporada Chamartn con su desquiciado equipo, eliminado en ese momento de la Copa por el Legans. Prisas, pitos, ms prdidas, Modric y Carvajal por Llorente y Achraf y la aficin pepinera gozndolo en el cielo del Bernabu, con sus chicos tan cmodos en el csped ante un Madrid grogui, con Bale y Cristiano en casa y la angustia agarrada a la estmago. Sin generar ocasiones y temeroso de la sentencia contraria, los blancos consumieron minutos en vaco camino del gran petardazo de la temporada. Champagne sac a Benzema y Ramos los goles del pase a semifinales para llevar a su equipo a la gloria y al Madrid al psiquiatra.
