Another Victory for Nontraditional Medicine

Recently eaten: so much meat
Recent annoyance: mad at the world

Funny, my doctor has yet to prescribe this kind of medicine for my high cholesterol.

Former premier recovers with greasy breakfast
Former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad, 82, reached a new milestone in his recovery from heart surgery last week -- he ate a greasy breakfast.

Mahathir, who had suffered two recent heart attacks before undergoing bypass surgery, chose roti canai, a popular dish of oily, fried bread and curried gravy as his first full breakfast.

He also drank high-energy milk, said a statement from Kuala Lumpur's National Heart Institute where he is being treated.

"After breakfast he had a full shower and was taken on a gentle ambulation around the bed," it added. "He will continue with intensive physiotherapy."
