THE MOST DANGEROUS FOOD
A dietitian was once addressing a large audience in
"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

"But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have, or
will, 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 asked, "Is it wedding cake?"
