Pork rinds, for example, are deep-fried pigskin, but ďJunk Food Thatís Good for You,Ē an article on the website of Menís Health magazine, points out that they also have zero carbs, 9 grams of fat and 17 grams of protein, which make them more acceptable as an occasional snack than, say, a small bag of potato chips.
You may be happy to know that in a study of 18,000 men, Harvard scientists found that men who consumed one or two alcoholic beverages a day had a lower risk of heart attack than nondrinkers.
