STEAK: “I know you love me – especially now with barbecue season about to begin.
I’ve gotta tell you, though: you might want to grill veggies more often.
Nature Medicine just published a study finding
that I have a substance that can really harden your arteries —
which is bad news for your blood stream.
Carnitine is that substance’s name,
and when your gut’s bacteria break it up
it can transform itself into an artery-hardening compound.
The more you eat of me,
the greater the risk to your heart.
I believe you know what to do.”
YOUR HEART: “Please pay attention to the message that steak just gave you! Eat more veggies and grill them this summer — your blood will flow better through your body and you and I will last longer.”
