Almonds are supposed to be good for you. I’ve heard it from health experts on the television, radio, and read it on the internet. In fact, even a doctor I recently visited told me that

almonds combined with different foods and drink, would be good for my prostate. Obviously, there must be something to it, right?

            So once “big food” hears that almonds are good for you, and about to become the next craze, what do they do? They glaze them, cover them with chocolate, or blueberries, or even strawberries, rendering the health benefits useless. What does the American public do? They buy the unhealthy almonds, believing that a little of this or a little of that, just makes them taste better.

            So, we eat unhealthy nuts, exercise less, if at all, because we are eating almonds, which are healthy, even though they are smothered in chocolate, etc., convinced that we are extending our lives, which will allow us the opportunity to sit and watch more television, while eating veggie pizza and drinking lite beer.

            And the cost of health care continues to go up even after we commit to eating healthy snacks.  How can this be?
