Hi, everyone.

Which is more correct?

a) Consuming lard is unhealthy to your body.

b) Consuming lard is unhealthy for your body.

Or are they perhaps equally correct?

    Thanks, 20000miles. Although I agree that describing something as being unhealthy "to (for?) your body" might seem somewhat obvious, I don't think it would exactly be wrong. Maybe I'm wrong, but I believe it's a common phrase. I'm just not sure whether using "to" or "for" would be more appropriate.
