LANSING, MI-- Brad Stimson feels a cold coming on. He's sneezing frequently and muscles ache. A Lansing doctor has prescribed food - and lots of it.
"Brad needs a massive food stimulus package. He needs to be eating five to six times a day the next few days, with a lot of high-energy foods like Sugar Smacks cereal. This will increase his will to live and provide his body the necessary incentive to fight off an incipient cold," said Dr. Kellog.
Others say that lots of fruits and vegetables are key to fighting off colds, but Dr. Kellog suggests the human body knows what it needs.
"I often prescribe - literally write it out on a prescription pad - a Big Mac or a Quarter-Pounder with cheese with fries and a strawberry milkshake. Because these products give the body the will to fight the cold. If you just feed it fruits and veggies, your body will shut down in protest since those things just don't taste as good."
