What possesses brilliant people to just disregard the obvious need to also exercise the body and eat right? Rand, Childs, Einstein, and a horde of others seem to believe that their minds can carry on while they neglect/abuse their bodies. Well, surprise, surprise, when your body dies, or "just" fails to work properly, your brain dies with it,(or is grievously degraded in its ability to function properly). Rand castigated dopers, while she herself was taking speed, so she could continue to not exercise and indulge in eating lots of chocolate. Long after the 1960's revelation that smoking was very deletrious to health, Ayn continued to smoke. Beg Pardon, but the dumbest of animals instinctively "knows" not to inhale smoke! Sheesh. Ayn also castigated a man for being an adulterer, all the while indulging in adultery with Nathaniel.
Do as I say, not as I do. Where have I seen this before?

She quit after her doctor noticed a malignancy in one of her lungs. See chapter 31 in The Passion of Ayn Rand.
I heard somewhere that Rand, when she became convinced smoking caused cancer, went cold turkey on cigarettes.
