+1, and just to be clear, people only require on the order of 10-15 
minutes of sun per day to get enough vitamin D. The link between sun 
exposure and melanoma is pretty well established at this point.

FYI, a single egg contains about 80% of the RDA for cholesterol - note 
that in this case, RDA refers to a recommended maximal allowance, not a 
minimal requirement. Exluding baking and the like, making eggs with 
every other yolk removed is well advised.

>I think generally, that if you're healthy, your body can handle a lot of crap that most people can't. Diseases are a lot less deadly, you don't get allergies as easily, you handle stress better.  If only I had the discipline to exercise regularly...
+1 again. Also, what passes for 'food' these days (in western cultures), 
simply isn't.
