GOOD NEWS FOR WISCONSINITES
A few years ago, we broke the story on bratwurst as the cure for swine flu. Based on that find, the results of this latest study should not be a surprise — especially to lifetime residents of Wisconsin. (We always said we were progressive!)
Right on time for Memorial Day festivities, a far-reaching clinical study just released by the prestigious Masbur Foundation has proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that eating bratwurst significantly increases life expectancy. The quantity providing optimum effectiveness is 69.7 lbs. per person annually, with larger quantities producing no additional benefits, but not posing any health risks, either. Apparently “too much of a good thing” only means … more enjoyment of a good thing.
In the study, which covered a dozen brands of bratwurst, consistent consumption of Johnsonville Brats seemed to provide the greatest benefits. Data analysts surmised that bratwurst-induced longevity might be connected to body-healing chemicals released through the taste buds, thereby explaining why Johnsonville had the edge on the other brands.
The study also suggests that generous doses of sauerkraut consumed in tandem with bratwurst helps the anti-aging process.
