There is alot of messages here about increased mortality among meat-eaters. Is that really true? Others (see: You need to compare the right things... - Lars, February 11 19100, and Bullshit. Do your homework better!!! - Lars, February 09 19100) have shown the opposite.

However, did you know that you can get breast cancer from a all vegeratian diet? I don't really believe it but since you seem to attack all those poor meat-eaters...
