CHICKEN AND SQUASH CAN CAUSE LEPROSY?
While we were watching a volleyball tournament on TV, I mentioned to my uncle that I am going to cook chicken with squash for dinner. He immediately shushed me and told me that the combination can cause leprosy? I'm sure I heard it before from our old folks but I'm not convinced. How can the lowly chicken and vitamin-rich squash cause leprosy? Leprosy is caused by a certain strain of bacteria, right? I told him it might just be an old wives tale but I got curious.
I checked Google and there are as many as beautiful chicken and squash dish photos as there are comments from people who affirmed what my uncle said. Whoa!
I wonder if any of those who prepared these dishes have leprosy now. Just look at these mouth-watering dishes:
I ended up cooking chicken, squash and other vegetables still. I'm stubborn like that and I am also not a big believer of old wive's tales. Do you believe that chicken and squash can cause leprosy?

Here's to hoping we don't get leprosy when we wake up tomorrow. What's your take on this old wive's tale? Do you believe it?
