Woody Allen's quirky futuristic film "Sleeper" released in 1973 had an amazing scene where Dr. Melik, portrayed by Mary Gregory, and Dr. Aragon, characterized by John McLiam, have a conversation about Allen's character who just woke up after 200 years to a future he doesn't recognize. This particular scene was especially prescient in light of the constant changes we see in the research about what is healthy for us and what is not. Here's the transcript of the enlightening exchange:

Dr. Melik: This morning for breakfast he requested something called "wheat germ, organic honey and tiger's milk."

Dr. Aragon: [chuckling] Oh, yes. Those are the charmed substances that some years ago were thought to contain life-preserving properties.

Dr. Melik: You mean there was no deep fat? No steak or cream pies or... hot fudge?

Dr. Aragon: Those were thought to be unhealthy... precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true.

We're probably a lot closer to this being a reality than anything else we've ever seen from the entertainment culture! For more information about why consuming fat, steak, and cream are healthy, check out http://www.livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog and prepare to have your eyes opened to the truth!
