The Spam Diet

According to a study by Canadian researchers, email spam can actually be good for you.

E-mail spam can be good for you if it comes as a steady stream of e-mails nagging about healthy habits, Canadian researchers said on Thursday.

People who were spammed about healthy eating and keeping active, tended to exercise and lose weight, according to the researchers at the University of Alberta.

I’m pretty suspicious of any study that suggests spam has this kind of an impact on its recipients.

If it did, my johnson would need to be tucked into my sock by now (sadly, I’m not quite there, even when I wear my 70s tubesocks).

Of course, putting all my cards on the table, I’m pretty suspicious of studies that come out of Canada in general…

Concentration is important!
