Foods to Fear

#6 BEAR MEAT
The Centers for Disease Control warn that all forms of undercooked wild game--especially bear meat--could lead to serious, potentially life-threatening, parasitic infections.

#5 SODA
No substance is more to blame for America's obesity problems than high-fructose corn syrup, the sweetener found in most non-diet soda.

#4 PIE CRUST
Your standard cherry-pie liner is made from three of the worst ingredients around--white flour and lard or shortening.

#3 MUSK-FLAVORED LIFE SAVERS
Possibly the worst-tasting substance you could ever place in your mouth. We're not sure why these putrid rings--which taste like a cross between grandma's potpourri and a floral-scented urinal cake--are so popular in Australia, but we're guessing Russell Crowe must have something to do with it.

#2 FUGU FISH
It's a staple in upscale Japanese restaurants, but Fugu contains a poison that's 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide, and potent enough to kill 30 adults. And the only way to know if your chef has correctly removed the toxic glands is by having a bite of the potentially deadly entree.

#1 WHITE BREAD
According to a recent Tufts University study, regardless of your overall diet, guys who eat the most white bread are also the most likely to be overweight. Blame it on those highly refined carbs which are a major contributor to abdominal fat.
