Government Recommends 10K Calories a Day!

But only for surviors of a nuclear attack.

Quote:
The stockpile included empty water drums and boxes of medical supplies, such as tourniquet bandages and an intravenous drip. Also, there were cans of high-calorie crackers with instructions to consume 10,000 calories a day per person. The instructions said the crackers should be destroyed after 10 years, but they were mostly intact.
The full story:

The idea is to create a post-Apocalyptic race of Super-Sumo wrestlers!

Hey, re-populating the world takes all the energy you can get. Hope they packed some bubbly.

>>> what survivors?

That would be the "Duck-and-Cover" kids! We were assured by guys in white shirts and black ties that an oak school desk would stop a 5 Megaton Ruskie H-bomb.
