Inside you, there are two wolves, and one of those wolves is an absolute mess. One of them wants to be a useful, clean, productive member of society, but the other wants to wallow in its own filth all day, playing video games and scratching its butt. It’s basically Freud, but with a zoological bent. We’re programmed to be tempted by our base urges, from poking at our own genitals to housing cheeseburgers like we live in a comic strip.

But what if we told you you should give in to some of those urges? Not the cheeseburger thing -- there’s a pretty straight line from there to the cardiovascular intensive care unit.

It turns out all of that can be good for you, so suck it, Mom.
