1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.

5. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat begged for bread after as little as two days.

6. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cold cuts.

7. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey bread-pudding person.

8. Newborn babies can choke on bread.

9. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than one minute.

10. Most developed world bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless statistical babbling

And yet.... and yet.....

Did you know that the ingredients used to make bread are also present in beer? This is the reason when faced with a choice between a sandwich and a nice bitterly cold one, I go for the latter...:blackstuff::blackstuff::toast::blackstuff::blackstuff:

Biscuits and the worst of the bunch, doughnuts. :cool:

I get the shakes when I see a krispy kreme store, or even a dunkin doughnuts store.

It counteracts the bread effects and makes it into a natural health food. :waving:

Great, I had tomatoes AND ketchup on my Back Yard Burger last night. And I'm pretty sure the Chili I have in my lunchbox has tomatoes too...

My name is Cymru (pronounced CUM REE) an I'm a breadaholic.....

I started off life in a Wonderloaf bakery, making those sublime delights on a three shift basis. The operators changed shifts weekly and we, the supervisors, did it fortnightly (every two weeks for the non-UK contingent). I think it was worked like that as no-one could stand anyone else... The dough was mixed in a Tweedy mixer whose design was based on the early centrifugal toilets in aeroplanes (it is impossible to make this stuff up). We used a continuous mixer on one line, and when the line stopped due to mechanical problems, the yeast slurry had to be dumped down the drain. This never failed to provoke an irate phone call from the sewage treatment plant down the road. Years later, when I was responsible for the startup of a water treatment plant at a yeast factory in South America, I finally understood their point of view.

Oh, and by the way,I also had several sandwiches today.:shock:

I'm fascinated, what does yeast do to a sewage treatment plant?
An effective sewage plant needs to balance the micro-organisms, yeasts and bacteria, with the substrate (waste) they are breaking down. A big influx of extra micro-organisms instantly throws the process out of control.

In the yeast production plant in Venezuela we used an anaerobic process using closed tanks. This cuts down on the smell but is more sensitive to control. Whenever some lazy operator cleaned up a spill of yeast by using a hosepipe this all headed straight for the tank with predictable results:doh::cheeky1:
