This fixation on food’s relationship to death is but another sign of our
culture’s deep fear of death. The subtext of these studies is “Eat and exercise
like a Spartan now, and be active and alert into your 90s—and with Viagra,
anything is possible!”
This addiction to longevity is especially evident in
the area of medical care—and not just among those who have no faith, but
especially among the most devout.
