I got fed up - not with healthy foods - with the commercials advertising illnesses and the appropriate pharmaceutical cure many months ago. I soon found myself not satisfied with muting them, but leaving the TV off entirely. I use it to watch DVDs in Spanish and English languages. Then I discovered a plan at the local cable company that reduced my cable bill from $42 a month to $11 a month. I grabbed it! So now in addition to not getting all the illnesses advertised, I no longer feel guilt about the huge expense of having a silent TV! Together with the $11 cable bill and my Netflix bill, I'm paying less than I was paying for all those channels and advertisements. When I do turn on the TV, I have the same number, same channels, I paid $42 a month for!
