Two sides of the Coin
I am intrigued by the price of a fruit drink.
My favorite is by the way soursop.
Often the price is 100mg of a good wine.
After all wine comes from a base of edible fruit.
Now I take 50mg of my favorite wine instead of the soursop.
Fruits are seasonal but alcohol is eternal (medicinal too).
Why I take 50 is economic (not small is beautiful) and nothing but economic and currently doctors recommend twice of what I take which is 100mg.
Let me analyze the fruit drink.
It is 90% water 4% ice cubes crushed, lot of sugar to kill the nutritional balance (sucrose instead of fructose) killing amount of table salt and liberal amount Ecoli from the poor (city) water source.
I say 100% of the dog shit ends in the river water intake.
Why drink fruit juice with bugs?
Drink the alcohol which is first class antiseptic (bacteria fear them like ghosts) and a high class mood elevator.
There is always a better side when one weighs the moral/ religious dilemma.
Little is good, that is how I translate “Mujja Pama Dhattana Weramani” the venerable precept.
