Death By Lifestyle: Day To Day Ways In Which We’re Ruining Our Health

Human beings, like all lifeforms, are in a constant state of evolution, passing along minor revisions and amendments to our physical makeup through our genetics to future generations, like script editors hashing out the perfect screenplay for Human Beings: The Movie. It’s a slow and complicated process that takes millennia (it took approximately 6 million years for fully formed humans to develop), but humankind has historically shown itself to be more than capable of adapting to its environment.

The trouble came when we got a little bit too good at it, to the point when we stopped accepting the limitations of nature and started crafting a man-made environment.

Her skin fit perfectly.

Roger watched from the bed.

Mornings were difficult for him, more so recently, with
the burning in his gut that never goes away.

He grimaced and took another swig of his coffee.

“What?” Felicity asked.

“What, what?” replied Roger.

“You made a face.”

“Did I?”

“Don’t be coy darling. Is it me?”

“It’s never you.” Roger said. “It’s me. My stomach hurts.”

“You’re just saying that to make me feel better–tell me the
truth: you think I’m a hag!”

Roger gestured toward a chair by the bed.

“Have a seat Imelda.”

Felicity sat and smiled, “Bring me my choose.”

Roger hopped up and scurried over to the…
