A recent Newsweek article hammered on Oprah Winfrey because a few guests on her show recommended personal health secrets that might not work for everyone. Suzanne Somers swears by “bioidentical” hormones to stay peppy, and other guests say spiritual positive thinking cures everything, from personal dissatisfaction to cancer. The Newsweek article quoted some health professionals saying that providing a forum for this kind of thing is medically irresponsible. But why shouldn’t Oprah let these people pitch their methods if they believe in them?

And yet, it can't really be heaven. Not with all these ants. The encyclopedia says ants eat leaves, honeydew and other invertebrates.
