So You Think You're Healthy?

So did they.

They had all the money, the time, and the resources needed to keep themselves in top shape.

They had the personal trainers and the personal nutritionists. They had maids and chefs.

They had more incentive than most of us do to stay healthy and in shape- they're celebrities after all!

So why do they look like this? Why will they die of the same diseases that afflict most Americans: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's?

Why didn't their good looks, fit bodies, and health last if they were doing all the "right" things?

Granted: time, stress and life take their toll on us all. But wouldn't you expect better results from people whose very livelihoods necessitate the stellar maintenance of their bodies?

I'm not trying to make fun of these celebrities. I'm trying to make a point. They thought they were healthy. They thought they'd always be healthy. They thought they'd always look the way they did in their 20's and 30's. But if this is how they look in their 50's and 60's, what will they look like in their 70's or 80's, if they even live that long?

My question to you is: why do you think you'll turn out any different?
