I read emulsifiers in my choc’late shake may cause
My gut to be as useless as a piece of rotten gauze.
Reader’s Digest says that processed meat is even worse,
And eating lots of hotdogs will land you inside a hearse.
Saturated fat in coconuts and soups therefrom
Make the outlook for weight loss unusually glum.
Even popcorn microwaved has sodium galore;
Eat a bowl and see as how your blood pressure will soar.
Frozen diet entrees are not really too nutritious.
And fruit juice is all sugar, its benefits fictitious.
Ev’rywhere I look an article warns that I’m feeding
Poison to myself . . . and so, I’ve given up on READING.
