Study Finds Value in Spam

According to a Life Science study, email spam is good for you.

Researchers split a group of more than 2,100 Canadians into two groups. One group got emails that promoted healthy lifestyles, the other got none. "These were informative and motivational messages sent weekly for 12 weeks," explained study leader Ron Plotnikoff of the University of Alberta. The emails promoted the benefits of a good diet and physical activity.

Those who were effectively spammed, as a group, saw their mean body mass index (BMI) go down, meaning it improved. BMI is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. Overall BMI rose for the control group, which did not get the emails.

So should the Conservatives spam Canadians for the next 12 weeks on the benefits of a Conservative government - next stop - majority on Parliament Hill?
