Meat Bad

Eating red meat may raise a woman's risk of a common type of breast cancer, and vitamin supplements will do little if anything to protect her heart, two new studies suggest.

Women who ate more than 1 1/2 servings of red meat per day were almost twice as likely to develop hormone-related breast cancer as those who ate fewer than three portions per week, one study found.

The other - one of the longest and largest tests of whether supplements of various vitamins can prevent heart problems and strokes in high-risk women - found that the popular pills do no good, although there were hints that women with the highest risk might get some benefit from vitamin C.


Boys can get breast cancer, too.

Here's the thing - if it's hormone-related breast cancer, what happens if they eat beef from cows who aren't pumped full of the stuff? If it's grass-fed, free-range, organic beef, would the same problem occur? And, if hormones are causing all this breast cancer, why the hell isn't someone (other than your usual "hippy liberal") doing something about getting the hormones out of beef production? Hormones causing breast cancer? Stop ingesting it, you moron.

anyone eating more than 1 1/2 servings of read meat per day is bound to have problems.

so as long as you're illiterate you're in the clear?
