Top Ten Bad Things That Are Good For You

http://www.livescience.com/health/top_10_badthings_good.html

Beer, Marijuana, Coffee, Sunlight, even Maggots -- Good for us? Check it out!

Beer quells heart disease and chocolate staves off cancer? Though often tagged with a disclaimer, studies that tell us to eat, inhale and generally indulge in "bad stuff" is music to our ears. So go ahead and enjoy these bad-for-you remedies-everything in moderation, as they say-until the next study inevitably overturns the research. Heather Whipps

I must say, if that's a maggot hanging out of that coffee cup, that's one bad ass maggot!! It looks for all the world.....well, Gadfly'll get to it, I'm sure.

I'm not sure of chocolate, but some of those other things are definitely good for you - in very strict moderation! As my smartass Doctor said after my first heart attack: "A beer or a glass of wine a day would be good for you, but I doubt you can even say moderation, so that's out."

Gadfly: Maggot in coffee cup? A MAGGOT? Looks like something else bad that's good for you. :)
Your doctor uttered a foul canard! You are the SOUL OF MODERATION!
Not!
