Germans Are Just Giving Up on Vegetables


The Wall Street Journal brings news today that restaurants in Hamburg are just getting rid of vegetables — customers aren’t eating them because of the country’s massive E. coli outbreak. In fact, according to the story, “Hamburg health minister Cornelia Prufer-Storcks said she is disappointed that some restaurants are still selling salads.” And yet, some hard-core adrenaline junkies are still eating raw vegetables, just for kicks. One such cavalier veggie lover tells the Journal, “I think it’s a new kind of bungee jumping — just eat a salad.” [WSJ]
