You Are What You ____________ (fill in the blank)

Back in 1967 when almost every experience was an Ah-Hah Oh Wow revelation, I remember being told "You are what you eat."  And suddenly it made sense to eat whole grain bread, brown rice, honey instead of white sugar and that weird new health food, yogurt.  Thus began...

Mercury: Don’t Eat It and Don’t Drink It
