Personally, I think it should be "Reading about what's bad for your health" is bad for your health.
I wouldn't take those health advice articles too seriously. I've seen them go back and forth on so many things. When I was a kid, you had to have
"red meat" every day, or you'd get weak and sick. Then they said that red meat is poison, it will kill you, never eat it. Now they're saying
it's OK. And so on. They used to tell us we needed to drink 8 glasses of water each day. Now they say we don't, and that those who do place an
unnecessary burden o the kidneys and heart (fluid overload).
I can't say my way is best, but mostly I eat when I'm hungry, drink when I'm thirsty, and try to keep everything in moderation. Doesn't always
work - I can eat a half-gallon of ice cream in one sitting, or a whole pepperoni, sausage, and garlic pizza by myself (along with a six pack of coke).
But most of the time I keep it within reason. I'm doing OK, yet I don't have to try to get by on granola and alfalfa sprouts.
As for thinking negatively - maybe it helps memory, but in my experience it's not so great for you. Things seem to go better when I'm able to keep
upbeat, to be optimistic. Maybe being able to forget, lets you stay more positive...
