Just what the dr. ordered.

Having a hard time getting rid of that cold or virus? We may have the cure. According to a Paraguayan home remedy the cure for a respiratory infection is a mixture of… the fat from a carpincho (capybara) and honey. I have not had the chance to take this home remedy just yet. (IF YOU ARE EATING WHILE READING YOU MAY WANT TO STOP READING AT THIS POINT) I have heard that after eating carpincho, that the smell of the carpincho will seep from your sweat glands!
They are the largest living rodent in the world, weighing in at 140 lbs. Kapiÿva in Guarani means “master of the grasses”. They can eat up to 8lbs of grass a day.
So next time you’re sick, go out and get you a fat carpincho!
