I’ve always been a dark chocolate person: the darker and richer, the better. Some ten years ago, science vindicated me: dark chocolate was found to have all sorts of health benefits, ranging from improving memory to lowering blood pressure. Same thing with red wine – I’m a red drinker, not a white drinker, and the red stuff is what is good for you.
As a lifelong hater of all things potato (I used to flush the things down the toilet when my parents tried to force me to eat them), I’m gratified to learn that potatoes contain carcinogens. (Hat tip.) The undeniable grossness of the potato is nature’s way of telling us to leave the blasted things in the ground and eat real food instead.
