Quote for the day.

One-quarter of what you eat keeps you alive. The other three-quarters keeps your doctor alive.

— An Ancient Egyptian proverb.

I heard this in the documentary Forks Over Knives which I watched on Netflix last week. It was an excellent summary of the case for why most Western degenerative diseases can be traced back to bad (read: mostly meat and dairy rather than vegetable-based) dietary choices.
