Which foods have always stood the test of time? Take eggs for instance- on a different day of the week some will say they are healthy and some will say they cause cancer! So what foods have always been good for you?

I'll start with apples.

The term is Vitality.

Meaning is it "alive" with nutrition, vitamins... and does it "give" energy...

A good rule of thumb is, if you leave the food item out, uncovered, the faster it decomposes the more vitality it has.

That being said, a well rounded diet has yet to be dis-proved as the best choice for most people.

Peace.

all those foods have proven side effects on the individual, including: pachouli odor, tie dyed T-shirts, and hairy arm pits

No foods have always been deemed healthy. Some asshole somewhere has tried to cash in by saying everything is bad for you at one time or another.

Fuck it, eat whatever you feel like eating for whatever reason suits you. It's exercise and activity that keeps you healthy, more than diet.

None.

Remember the ALAR and Apples scare in the late 80's

The media will find anything, especially about something as universal and known healthy, to scare people and raise ratings and hurt business.

Hmm... I guess one really needs to properly define "healthy". My unprofessional take on it - We've tens of thousands of years of evolutionary history behind us where food was not really plentiful or guaranteed. This is why our bodies crave high energy foods like sugars and fats. These are considered "bad" these days, but a couple of hundred years ago, when food was more scarce, would probably properly be considered "healthy" for the energy they provided alone. .

Of course, now there is an abundant supply of such, available with no more work than a swipe of a plastic card or exchange of a piece of paper. Therein, I believe, lies the problem - the increased amount of food we intake vs. the decreasing average activity. Since this situation is so recent in human history, evolution hasn't had a chance to play catch up yet.

Of course (also in my unprofessional opinion) we've stopped natural evolution - at least in the proper direction. Evolution dictates that those with undesireable traits die off, for the most part, before they have a change to pass those traits on. Modern medicine, along with our current social programs, pretty much keeps everyone alive to childbearing age, even those genetically undesireable. And I've seen some pretty ugly and stupid mofo's reproduce - and they usually find someone just as ugly and stupid to do it with, so the offspring are probably likely to be that much worse off. Perhaps a bit of a twisted way to look at it, but hey, that seems to be pretty much the way evolution works.

But not soy sauce which has fat and sodium working against it.

I don't care, if it tastes good I'm going to eat a lot of it. Is my mom out there somewhere?
