I tell Mrs. Orange that when I get old, I'm gonna do whatever I want, maybe including a nice heroin addiction.

If it takes a few years for the effects to be noticed then it makes sense.

"There was also no link found between a 'Western diet' and widespread diabetes, heart disease or death."

I don't see why more seniors don't pick up a good hard drug habit.  They've got nothing else going for them.  Most octogenarians end up in a home, or as they are affectionately known in the health care field, "End of Life Facilities."  Go find a building with "Prestige" on the door and take a good long look around.  Get a nice smell of the air.  Spend some time gazing upon what amounts to Human life at the nadir of ability.  See how often their family comes to visit.  Maybe sample some of the food they "get" to eat - although they can't often taste it anyway...

Every single junkie on the planet lives a better life and dies a better death than anyone in those facilities.  It's horrendous.  And it's your future as well, unless you happen to be fabulously wealthy.

Pretty much this.  My dad was an alcoholic, and quit drinking at 32.  Successfully never took a sip, until he started getting into wine at 65 or so.  Now he downs like two bottles at any family function.  Yes, he's still an alcoholic.  But at this point, who cares?  He's not violent or anything.  We just let him do his thing...

People over 75 are mostly on multiple medications, and there are all kinds of foods that will harmfully interact with, or at least negate, the drugs they're taking.

I.e., article (which I didn't bother to read) is stupid.

By the way, anyone who thinks that the thing to do when 75, weak, feeble, and suffering from the onset of dementia, is to start taking hard drugs...knows nothing at all about being 75, weak, feeble, and suffering from the onset of dementia.  I've been only too close to it for the past year.  People in that condition already feel lost and helpless.  The very last thing they want to do is disappear inside a drug-induced fog.  They're trying to maintain their grip on reality, not fling themselves away from it.

In fact experts in geriatric medicine recommend dropping cholesterol-reducing statins above that age because there's a greater danger that NOT ENOUGH fat gets to the brain to nourish it.

If they made it to 75, their dietary choices are probably just fine.

I hope to be enjoying Bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwhiches long into my dowager years.

That's why they all go eat that fried crap at Long John Silvers

Just open up a nursing home with a McDonalds inside - probably cheaper than the way they do it now and maybe their family will visit more.

Depends a lot on genetics, I'm afraid. My paternal grandmother ate poorly all her life, was overweight and sedentary, and lived to 87. My maternal grandparents don't eat much healthier, and are still alive in their mid-80s, although my grandfather did have to have bypass surgery.

Michael Clarke Duncan, on the other hand, exercised a lot, became a vegetarian, and wound up dying of a heart attack in his 50s.

I told my husband if I get cancer I am going to binge eat my favorite foods all the time. Cheese cake, watermelon, raspberries and endless sandwiches and burgers. Forget being thin or eating healthy. I can only imagine I will feel the same if I make it to seventy.

mmmmmm, gravy...

Mom's been heavy all her life, and as long as I can remember she's always been on a diet.  For the last year or so she's pretty much lived on junk food (potato chips, doritos, etc).  She's 75, her mind is pretty much gone, I figure let her enjoy it while she still can.
