You'll not hear this story reported by the acolytes like Matthews or Olberman as they sing their nightly paeans to the messiah. Even so, this story should be shouted from the rooftops because if it comes to fruition, it'll be more detrimental to our health than a carton of lucky strikes and a chicken-fried steak a' day! At its rotting core, the message simply says, "You've had your fun. Now, quit consuming and die already."
