A medical opinion on the PM's brain
I read in the paper earlier today that the Wire Brush has been put on the South Beach Diet by his wife. Sheesh! I thought, more reasons to feel contempt for Martin. First, he's fallen for a stupid fad diet, and second, he's under the thumb of his wife. (I'm continually amazed at how my opinion of him still manages to drop, day after day. How low can he go?)
But this diet may be affecting more than just the already low opinions of him from chauvinistic junk-science critics. He may be impairing his ability to think:
"Cutting carbohydrates means he's also cutting his cognitive functions," said Beth Mansfield, a registered dietician and fitness specialist with Peak Performance of Ottawa.This would explain a lot...
"That can't help a man like the prime minister think straight."
