The Imperial Cancer Research Fund states that either bowel, breast, prostate, lung and stomach cancer are significant lower among vegetarians than for meat-eaters (Go there!).
Sorry for you, but your lies are bad!!!

The National Cancer Institute's recommended a fare including meat (Go there!). The Institute even state (Go there!) that EXPERTS AGREE that you should INCLUDE MEAT if you want to eat in a way to stay healthy and have a lower cancer risk. And look at this, which is the same institute's Clinical Guidelines on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults. Here IS also meat included. Why?

Because, meat is healthy of course!!!

And FDA still (they have allwaws) recommend a fare including meat, and it's not because they want to kill americans... It's because meat is healthy!!!

Sorry for you MDG, but I'm right as usual!!!

McSpotlight: The Defendants asked Dr Sydney Arnott (McDonald's expert on cancer) his opinion of the following statement: "A diet high in fat, sugar, animal products and salt and low in fibre, vitamins and minerals is linked with cancer of the breast and bowel and heart disease". He replied: "If it is being directed to the public then I would say it is a very reasonable thing to say."The court was then informed that the statement was an extract from the London Greenpeace Factsheet. This section had been characterised by McDonald's lawyer at pre-trial hearings as the central and most "defamatory" allegation, which if proven would be the "kiss of death" for a fast-food company like McDonald's. On the strength of the supposed scientific complexities surrounding this issue the Defendants had been denied their right to a jury.

(The original source for the claim was the WHO Report 1990, as mentioned in the referenced version of the "What's Wrong with McDonald's?" leaflet.)

-it is fair to say that the jury is still out on whether eating meat causes cancer.

As for the Appeal Judgement last March, the judges concluded (in the light of new evidence); 'if one eats enough McDonald's food, one's diet may well become high in fat etc., with the very real risk of heart disease.' The Lord Justices went on to state that this last finding 'must have a serious effect on their trading reputation since it goes to the very business in which they are engaged. In our judgment, it must have a greater impact on the respondents' [McDonald's] reputation than any other of the charges that the trial judge had found to be true'.
