Study: Use Of Phrase ‘Don’t Skimp On The’ Linked To Heart Disease

February 15, 2008 | Issue 44•07

 DALLAS—According to a study published Monday by the American Heart Association, people who frequently start sentences with the phrase “don’t skimp on the” are 40 percent more likely to develop some form of heart disease. “Use of the phrase poses a very serious health risk, especially when the speaker is in close proximity to mayonnaise,” said Dr. Keith Logsdon, a leading cardiovascular researcher and chief author of the study. “We have also found data suggesting that the seemingly benign utterance ‘just a sliver’ could be equally detrimental to heart health, particularly when used three to four times in the span of an hour.” Since completing the study, Logsdon and his fellow researchers have begun an in-depth exploration of the recent rise in heart attacks and its possible correlation with having watched all episodes of Soul Train when they originally aired.

    This study would be flawed from the start as everyone participating would be too old to rmeber if they had had a heart attack or not
