A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in Chicago:
“The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us
sitting here, years ago.
Red meat is awful. Soft drinks erode your stomach lining. Chinese food is
loaded with MSG. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the
long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water.
But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all — and we all have,
or will at some point, eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that
causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?”
A 75-year-old man in the front row stood up and said, “Wedding cake.”
