Eat MRE’s for 21 Straight Days?

CNN reports: “Do military-themed culinary creations like parachute pork, battalion brownie pops or Ranger red hot party mix sound appealing to you?”  

“If so, Uncle Sam wants you to participate in a research study.”

Researchers want to learn how MREs influence the millions of bacteria in troops’ digestive systems.”
