Eat more bacon, drink more whiskey, take more naps, lay off all kale, and throw out your multivitamins and standing desk! In The Good News About What's Bad for You...The Bad News About What's Good for You, author Jeff Wilser shares all the research that allows you to celebrate your vices and stop feeling bad about t brushing your teeth after eating that extra slice of cake. This book has two sides to it: one sharing all the good news, the flip side containing all the bad news, making this a fun gifty package that people will want to share and commiserate over with friends. Impeccably researched and told with wit, charm, and a large dose of humour, the author sprints through a broad range of topics - from coffee to green tea, tequila to Vitamin Water, to apologising and swearing. Wilser sifts through each study exposing everything from the merits of procrastination to the downside of yoga. In an age where so many people bend over backward in pursuit of the most healthy and pure lifestyle, this book reminds readers to stop needlessly denying themselves pleasure, and brings them back to the tried-and-true golden rule of everything in moderation.
