  • ​CHANGE ORDER #8

    Heretofore Order #8 of the Ten Doctor’s Orders has been “Moderation in all things”. I was never satisfied with that order. It was a place-holder so that I would have ten orders like Moses. But it was useless as a teaching tool since women already knew it and American men, having learned excess, violence and winning as children, can’t learn moderation & compromise as adults. 

    Besides that, there are things in which you should not be moderate, such as devotion to the truth. And cases where compromise is inappropriate. Cutting the dose of statin drugs in half is inappropriate; they should be stopped altogether. 

    So last week I changed Order #8 to “Eat more slowly”.  I noticed that when food arrives at the table, Americans pick up their fork and do not set it down again until the food is all eaten. By contrast, French people set their fork down while talking or listening intently. They don’t talk with mouths full.

    It is important to eat slowly to have time to absorb the first part of the meal before reaching the second part. Many eat so fast, they are still hungry when they reach dessert.  Among people being rescued or going to the emergency room for choking on food, obese eaters outnumber lean. Food-absorption is improved by slow eating, and symptoms of acid reflux and other gastric distress are reduced.
