Oxford Doctor’s Medical Question

A doctor was addressing a large audience in Oxford.

“The material we put in our stomachs should have killed most of us sitting here years ago. Red meat is full of steroids and dyes. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Asian food is loaded with MSG. High trans-fat diets can be disastrous and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and most of us 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?”

After several long seconds of quiet, a eighty year-old man in the front row raised his hand and softly said,

“Wedding cake.”
