Caution: Reading these cookbooks may be hazardous to your health. That's what the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine suggests in releasing its list of the five worst cookbooks of 2010.

"They use some of the worst possible ingredients in terms of nutritional profiles," Susan Levin, nutrition education director for the nonprofit organization, says in a Hartford Courant story.  "They're using lots of heavy cream and butter and going all out in terms of fat and calories."

Gordon Ramsay’s "World Kitchen" tops the list. And you'd be surprised by what other top chefs turn up too. Read the full story here.

And then you may want to rethink your holiday menu.
