Cholesterol Done Him In

Bob, is liver really high in cholesterol? It has no "fat" on it, really, unlike most other meats and it's such a great source of iron and protein. Had quite a laugh reading this one, though, as your humor always comes through. Congratulations on your win in Dr. Ram's contest! Love, Carolyn

Ya gotta die from something, and there are worse killers than food. I can picture better foods than liver, though, to die for. Fun poem.
