Chess. Is. Good. For. You.
What a way to start off the summer folks, coconut oil is now deemed bad, and was never healthy to begin with, does this apply to all things coconut? What purpose will a can of Dole’s Crushed Pineapple serve now!? Speaking of getting caught in the rain, I bet that Morton’s salt lady has a weak grin or her face now, because in a few weeks time, salt will also be declared bad for you…Again. Mark my word, by the end of the decade everything will be considered unhealthy except for watermelon and yak butter.
