Sometimes, what we considered an “acceptable” risk is suddenly thrown into the unacceptable category. Seat belts are an example. When I was a kid, I didn’t know what a seat belt was. I laid in the back window of the car going down the highway. Somehow, I survived unscathed from this experience. I also played with liquid mercury, rubbing it onto pennies to make them shine. Pretty cool at the time. I’m not sure if I got away with that one or not; depends on who you talk to I guess.
Sometimes, risk sneaks up on us in insidious ways. Take smoking, for example. Some people seem to get away with smoking. Most, do not. Day after day, smokers are exposing their lungs and others around them to the harmful chemicals associated with cigarette smoke. My Dad and Mom smoked all the time. They both died of smoke-related diseases. My brother and his wife smoked for years. He had an aortic aneurysm and she now has COPD. Unlike my parents, she quit smoking and he has cut way, way, down, but the damage is already done.
Short Term vs. Long Term Thinking
All of this is old news, but people smoke anyway. Why is that? Because quitting would negatively impact their lifestyle, at least in the short term. Quitting smoking is extremely tough for a lot of people. The same thing applies to foods we like to eat, like hamburgers. People are not going to quit eating them just because someone says it’s unhealthy to eat hamburgers. Quitting usually requires a traumatic, life-altering event like a massive heart attack and even then, it may still be tough for some people to give them up.
The Burger Buddy Fat Reducer allows you to clean up your hamburgers right as they come off the grill, making them more heart-healthy* than a regular burger, and much more easily digestible. Taking less than a minute to leave out up to 50% of extra fat in your burgers for less than the price of an average pizza? Maybe you can have your cake and eat it too.
*While The Burger Buddy Fat Reducer has been laboratory tested to reduce up to 50% of fat in burgers, our company makes no guarantees about other potential benefits. Your personal diet should be discussed with your family doctor.
