We (Australia) just had a local celebrity die of breast cancer the other week (well it was secondary bone cancer she actually died of but yes it was from her previous breast cancer that was removed), her name was Belinda Emmet.
Anyhow, like always with these things and the media, there is now breast cancer related articles popping up every where, including this one:
WOMEN who eat red meat more than once a day double the risk of getting the most common form of breast cancer, doctors have found.
Breast cancer link to diet rich in meat
As we all know, the media tend to twist and over sensationalise things, which brings me to ask does anyone know more about this? as I have no doubt this is going to come up a lot for a while!
I will have a look around and see what I can find, but I thought I'd mention it here too...
I assume it is more to do with nitrates and how we feed and treat our livestock. But of course, people would rather just tell you to limit your meat intake, rather then actually stop doing all this crap to our meat that causes it!!!
Yet another good reason to go local and organic!
