eat meat and die


from motherjones.com

"A new report released by the World Health Organization on Monday reveals that processed meats such as bacon, hot dogs, and sausage cause cancer. Red meat, while carrying a slightly lower risk than processed meats, likely does as well.

According to the organization, daily consumption of 50 grams of processed meats—defined as meats that have been transformed by salting, curing, or other taste-enhancing methods—increased the likelihood of cancer by 18 percent.

Processed meats, which are linked to an increased likelihood of bowel cancer, were found to be as carcinogenic as cigarettes, arsenic, and alcohol."



OMG! Processed meat is as carcinogenic as smoking? OK, everyone says smoking causes cancer. And, as a result, in many/most public places in America it is illegal to smoke. What about second hand meat, does that cause cancer too? Here's a thought: if processed meat causes cancer, if "Processed Meat Kills", why don't all the anti-smoking state and local governments in the U.S. make eating meat i-l-l-e-g-a-l, like they did with smoking in public!?
