Beware! Carbohydrates will ruin your health

Dave Barry: “I probably shouldn’t admit this to you younger readers, but when my generation was your age, we did some pretty stupid things. I’m talking about taking CRAZY risks. We drank water right from the tap. We used aspirin bottles that you could actually open with your bare hands. We bought appliances that were not festooned with helpful safety warnings such as, ‘DO NOT BATHE WITH THIS TOASTER.’


But for sheer insanity, the wildest thing we did was – prepare to be shocked – we deliberately ingested carbohydrates.” —International Herald Tribune [via walker]
