Sooo...Meat IS bad for you afterall..??

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I always knew meat was bad for people but never knew to what extent
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/afp/2007050...r-0b0437e.html

Now they seem to be finding the real reasons behind some forms of cancer
maybe they will think twice before blaming smokers for every lurgy known
to humankind
Quote:
The figures establish HPV infection as the greatest risk factor for this
type of cancer, overturning previous theories blaming a pack-a-day smoking habit
for 20 years, or regular heavy alcohol consumption over 15 years.
Now that is a major 'discovery'' but ....it's been known for a long long time....
but 'scientists' prefer to look at the ' most likely reason' for tumours rather than the
scientific evidence...thank god someone had some sense

the number one cause of cancer is living. stop living no cancer.

anyway, stick around in 5 years there will be study to show that study is all wrong

I would imagine a very high cause of cancer would be stress. Protracted stress, of a higher-than-normal intensity. This is why (IMO) a large number of doctors end up with cancer.

But I don't eat meat anyway - love it, just don't eat it.

IMO you eat EVERYTHING in moderation - a little meat, a little vegie, a little dessert for a well balanced diet.

I'm not giving up my meat

The link goes to a "page not found" page.

I agree with Bruce: The #1 cause of death is LIFE.

And there is no way THIS Irish girl is giving up steak and taters, no way, no how.

One of my best friends died last summer at age 47. The day before she passed, she was complaining that she should quit smoking and that she was too fat. Next day, she's gone, and my perceptions of the world have changed yet again.

This is the ONLY life we have - let's spend it ENJOYING IT instead of running around always worried about what MIGHT kill us. We are ALL destined to die anyway.

Ok, do you guys know what kind of "meat" she's talking about? (the link worked for me the other day) And they're not talking about steak.

OMG I just googled her quote

Ummm...it does have to do with steak and potatoes...or twigs and berries

Hmmm..since this is a "family" site I don't think I can post the link. Just google her quote.

Dan Savage wrote his column this week about the topic. His column is published in the Stranger, in Seattle, and easily available on the web. His last name is in the title. I really can't post a link because, well, this topic is one of the most tame.

It makes perfect sense to me. HPV causes cervical cancer, why wouldn't it cause throat cancer? The tissue isn't really that different. Dan Savage had a really great point that now people will actually back the HPV vaccine.
