Food for thought

Subject: FW: Fw: The Doctor questions his patient



I recently picked a new primary care physician. After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing "fairly well" for my age.



A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, "Do you think I'll live to be 80?"



He asked, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer/wine?"



"Oh no," I replied. "I'm not doing either."



Then he asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"



I said, "No, my other Doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!"



"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?"



"No, I don't," I said.



He asked, "Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"



"No," I said. "I don't do any of those things."



He looked at me and said, "Then why do you give a shit if you live to be
80?"
