Catsup Fights Cancer

David Hammond | Jun 25, 200207:15 PM

As you might have heard from any one of a number of news sources, the World Health Organization held an emergency meeting today to discuss potentially carcinogenic chemicals created as starchy food, like potatoes, are cooked at high heat -- that includes French fries, potato chips, and even potato pancakes. This is, indeed, a dire situation.

Remember, though, that tomatoes contain anti-carcinogenic substances, so if you must eat French fries (as I must), make sure to douse them generously with catsup. For your health.

Can there be any doubt that a higher power has ordained catsup to be the condiment of choice on fried potatoes – if not all food?

There are abundant online resources that review the power of tomato-based sauces to fight cancer as well as perform a number of other salubrious tasks for humankind. A link to one of those sources is attached.
