No matter what you’ve been told…vegetables really are bad for you.
It’s not just that onions are packed with sulphuric acid, or that celery makes its own insect repellant (which is known to irritate human skin), or that lima beans contain a chemical called amygdalin, which, when mixed with the digestive juices in your stomach, turns into cyanide.
Yes, that cyanide.
In addition to their lesser-advertised (and some might say, dangerous) traits, vegetables also exhibit some very questionable behavior. Take giant sea kelp, for example. True, it’s a vegetable you probably won’t find at the grocery store, but it’s an edible plant never the less – one that can grow up to two feet per day. Think about that.
We’ve been eating vegetables for millions of years. If they ever decide to teach us a lesson, we could be in a lot of trouble.
You'll find more frightening but true tidbits about vegetables in every chapter. If you’ve ever been concerned about what you eat, read this book. It just might change the way you look at what's on your plate.
