Leonard Nimoy dies at age 83

Even though this happened a couple of days ago and its hardly news now, I am posting this as I have just now found out about it.
On his official Twitter account, his granddaughter writes

Hi all, as you all know, my Grandpa passed away this morning at 8:40 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was an extraordinary man, husband, grandfather, brother, actor, author-the list goes on- and friend. Thank you for the warm condolences. May you all LLAP. – Dani

Rest In Peace!

Issues surrounding healthy eating have developed major significance in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. As food choices widen, so do the concerns about genetically-modified products, additives and the processing of foods.

for many orthorexics, drinks must be pure – the idea of drinking simple tap water is completely abhorrent and only organic rain water will suffice

At the pinnacle of such healthy eating concerns, a brand new eating disorder has been identified: orthorexia. Orthorexia describes a constraining desire to eat the healthiest food possible, usually food in its purest form, which has not been contaminated by additives or cooking processes. The term orthorexic can be used adjectivally, or as a countable noun to refer to individuals suffering from the condition. For many orthorexics, drinks must be equally pure – the idea of drinking simple tap water is completely abhorrent and only organic rain water will suffice! Orthorexia is also associated with an extreme obsession with cleanliness of cooking environments and sterilisation of cooking utensils.

The term has been the subject of fervent debate in the medical world, some arguing that orthorexia is not valid as a bona fide eating disorder since, unlike other identified psychological conditions, it does not always begin with an attitude of low self-esteem. However, even in the virtual world there is substantial evidence for ‘food phobia’, as websites such as www.beyondveg.com provide recipes and dietary information to fuel the needs of the orthorexic.

Jon Lovitz could not believe he was included in the “In Memoriam” segment during the SNL 40th anniversary special. After all, he is still very much alive. But while Lovitz’s reaction added some laughter to the proceedings, the tribute was a somber moment, featuring clips of late cast members Gilda Radner, Phil Hartman, John Belushi and Chris Farley.
