    The roots of the cassava plant.are rich in protein, minerals and vitamins A, B and C. However, it is poisonous without proper preparation. Eaten raw, the human digestive system will convert part of it into cyanide. Even two cassava roots contain a fatal dose

    Heck, they were eating people and shrinking heads not so long ago. I worked with some philipinos and you would not believe what they eat.

    We have four cats, damn i'm never going to lose weight.

    It's sad when things like that happen, when they check into it they will find that there were at least three warning signs. So easy to see looking back, I feel bad for everyone involved. Imagine living the rest of your life with that mistake hanging over you sad, sad, sad. Or missing your little ones that you weren't there to protect sad, sad, sad.
