If a person drinks a little, smokes a little, and indulges a little in fatty, high-cholesterol foods, then his liver will become slightly damaged, his lungs will become slightly damaged, and his arteries will become slightly clogged, yet he may still be able to live until age 90.
Another person, who
has never smoked and who never eats junk food, but who drinks liquor like a fish day and night, will have pristine lungs and arteries, but will suffer total liver failure and be dead by the age of 45.
The first person can live twice as long as the second person -- even though they were both equally indulgent -- because he utilized his body's full resistance potential by distributing the stress across his entire system, instead of straining one component to the point of breakdown.
Eumalometry is the theory that, to a person who is *prone* to indulge (people without the temptation need not care) -- the best way to do it is to distribute the damage evenly, like building houses in the game "Monopoly".
A eumalometry practitioner will give you a "scorecard" of your bodily organs, e.g.
Liver - 3
Stomach - 1
Arteries - 4
Lungs - 2.
Instead of giving you negative advice or blanket statements such as "eat more fruits and vegetables", s/he will advise you on which vices or indulgences you *can* best afford to enjoy, *should* you feel the unavoidable urge to indulge in something.
Again, the focus is to optimize longevity by distributing the lifetime damage to the body parts in an even manner.
