When we were little, our parents told my brother and me that there was a battle between the germs and the leukocytes going on in our bodies. “Send down the sugar!” the germs cried daily, while the leukocytes called in response, “Send down the vegetables!”
I listened, and in adulthood I can claim pretty good health, yet I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Okay, a beast of a sweet tooth. In fact, my personal research supports the hypothesis that the only way I can stop eating Reese’s Miniatures is to eat them all.
