What the ... health report?!?!?

Once again the Korea Times, worst in the nation, has lowered the bar of stupidity. A friend pointed out an article titled Korean food better than Western one against weight gain: research. It is hard to decide what to talk about first, the article overall or the poor English.

Let's go with English first. The article is so poorly written it could have been a Herr Consoleman production.

"Korean food better than Western one against weight gain: research." 

It left me wondering what one Western food Korean food is better than? 

"A research team announced on March 28 that Korean food helps people not gain weight as its actual absorption of calories is about 10 percent lower than meat-oriented Western food of the same calories." 

Wait a minute! Hold it! Korean food absorbs calories? What the kimchi?!?!?

"Scientists presume that Koreans has absorbed low calories  ... " 

Ok, enough of beating that horse. You get the point.

Then you have the gist of the article. My friend Bald Flint said it best and I will paraphrase him.

What genius! Foods made from rice and vegetables are healthier than fried chicken and Coke! Thank god for the scientists who figured this stuff out and The Korea Times for reporting it! Is it any wonder that there was no reporter named as being responsible for the article?
