Dangerous Biscuits 危险的饼干

发表时间:2010/8/10字号:T|T
When we are warned about the dangers of food, it usually relates to food allergies or food poisoning. The image of killer biscuits has never quite come in to people's minds.
Millions of people reach for a 'biccy' whenever they pour a cup of tea and it seems that this simple action is an activity packed with hidden danger. Almost half of all Britons have been injured while eating a crunchy biscuit with their tea or coffee, according to figures released by a new survey.
The research conducted by Mindlab International shows a staggering 500 people each year need hospital treatment after a biscuit-related injury. And it’s estimated that millions of Brits have become cookie casualties at some point.
It also found that almost a third of adults said they had been splashed or scalded by hot drinks while dunking or trying to fish out the remnants of a collapsed digestive.
