Beans versus Cancer


Splendid! To bean, or not to bean!


I personally have bean beaning for years, so am now immune ( or should that be, imbeane?) to the gaseous effects of pulses.

However, I'd add another wonderful spice to the anti-flatulent Brigade list:


"Cultures that traditionally use beans abundantly tend to use herbs and spices said to fight flatulence. These include turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cumin, anise, fennel seeds, caraway seeds, rosemary, lemongrass, garlic and basil.


Asafoetida, or Hing. Available in your local Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi Market.

I've got to come up with a new song now!


Beans, beans good for your gut,

the more you eat the less they'll cut...



Beans, beans good for your colon,

if you eat them, you'll be gettin' olden...


Beans beans, good for your ass,

healthy colon, lotsa gas...


Clearly I am a poor poet.
