Boffins at Kentucky University in the United States of America (the USA), are recommending that instead of eating five helpings of fruit and veg a day, people should scoff five portions of fried chicken instead.
The university's head of army and nutrition studies, Professor Sanders said, "Not only is fried chicken a fun and tasty treat for the whole family but it contains the vitamins G, R and Q, these are essential for taste bud stimulation and producing saliva which helps lick tasty hickory smoked sauce from the fingers."
Nutrition and health food campaigners in the U.S have attacked the claims made by Sanders.
Ann Emic, chairperson of LEON (Lets Eat Only Nectarines) has decried Sanders position saying, "I know for a fact that Sanders once killed a man." She went on to add, "Eating any form of animal is wrong, whether it be chicken, cow or racoon. When a person has colonic irrigation it is mostly decaying meat that the body can not digest that is flushed out, eating meat is totally unnatural."
Sanders replied to these comments by stating, "And exactly how natural is having a pipe filled with coffee rammed between your buttocks?"
The debate rages on.
