Coconut VI

Coconut Juice, Coconut IV

Eugene Wu is back with our New Year's Eve (Eve) Cartoon!

The holidays are always challenging on the health. Flying (or driving, or walking) across the country to see loved ones, an endless parade of dinners and lunches, the lack of yoga and gym classes, and the parties. Oh the parties! With such a blur of activities, how can one _not_ feel like Coco the Coconut after the deluge of alcoholic beverages, heavy eggnog, and the lack of hydration?

Well praise science! Let it ring from sea to shining sea that Coco can drink its own medicine.

Dehydrated? Grab a pack of coconut saline and dip it in your veins[1].
Feeling hungry? Chew on some rich coconut flesh, because it's not red meat -- it's white.
Low energy? Drink from a fresh coconut stream and enjoy its supply of copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc[2].
Growing old? Bathe in its wealth of cytokinins and protect yourself from old age and cancer.

Whatever your holiday plans are, stay strong and eat our friend Coco the Coconut, and don't let him go to waste [3].
