Months later I find myself coming back to the dying words of a man: Otto Lilienthal.
Born in Germany in 1848, Otto studied the flight of birds as a child, attempting to fly with home made wings. He later studied engineering and became world-known for his successful heavier-than air glider flights. He died of a broken spine after falling from a glider in 1896, uttering these final words: "Opfer müssen gebracht werden."
On another note, perhaps it is not sugar, but fat which is the culprit? According to this theory; fat blocks insulin receptors and prevents sugar from being carried quickly out of the bloodstream. There it lingers, feeding those yeasties. A sad truth, that I may have to say goodbye to an avocado a day. xo
