/An Apple a Day/
For the new year:
Buy a new car and then pour sludge into the gas tank
Pour water into your refrigerator’s Freon unit
Toss a gallon of dirt into the gears of your washing
Of course, these are things you would never do for

machines in your life.
Yet, we regularly abuse the most important machine
in our lives by filling it with fuels that do not
power it well and may also lead to its destruction.
Obviously, the machine in question is your own body.

all this year has to bring.
After all, anything that keeps the doctor away can't
be all bad.
