      I grew up in an area where sugarcane was widely grown. I would often just grab a piece on the side of the road and chew on it. Eew, I know but I was young. It certainly seems that it didn't do me any harm though. I didn't know it was good for me at the time, I just liked the taste. Voted interesting.
