There are some Thanksgiving dishes, however, that does take it too far and just makes us sick to our stomachs -- and we want to help you steer clear of those. Take this as the precautionary list of what Thanksgiving food you should avoid seeking out or making, your guests and your stomach will thank you.

No this is not the latest SPAM creation. This is what we call over-kill, literally. Twelve different types of poulty died for this ungodly concotion that will try to tear your stomach a new exit route. The 12-bird True Love Roast is an extra-large turkey filled with goose, chicken, pheasant, aylesbury and barbary duck, poussin and guinea fowl, partridge, pigeon (also referred to as squab), quail, and mallard duck. And just in case you're not sick yet, there's an additional eight types of stuffing shoved in there.

  •   LIVING WITH HPV  |  September 04, 2009
