Two weeks ago, in preparation for a medical procedure, I went on a liquid diet for 12 hours then fasted for 38 more hours, only having a single cup of tea 26 hours before the event. The end result? The doctors found nothing. I guess that's good (at least better than stomach cancer), but being so dehydrated and starved my system was down and I developed strep throat that I'm just now getting over 10 days later. Just remember, if I didn't have forced health care from my job, you guys would have paid for all that and, as statistics show, the uninsured get billed the highest costs (go figure that incongruous one out).
