Stumbled across that article today when opening up my browser.  Since it automatically goes to MSN(I never changed it) I had to follow the click bait.

 

Found this to be interesting with scientific terms to back it up like "may be" and "probably".  Sounds a lot like the story my little girls tell me about how the window got broken in the garage.

I never put much stock in articles like this, you also got to look at the source(s), MSN, and the World Health Organization(which I don't trust at all).  BTW, I saw the article too, did you read the comment section, most people there feel like we do.

The news feeds should have an article about what doesn't cause cancer. It will be a very short article for sure.

It all boils down to: living eventually causes death. Enjoy the time you have. Good Luck, Rick

I am with you guys 100%  It was on our 6am news this morning too.  Just as big a farce as "Global Warming".  All the lies coming out of the White House does more damage than any coal fired power plant.

I'd bet if you looked close enough the so called study was sponsored by PETA.

This is why I really dislike statistics. There is no actual study done just a compilation of data points to prove what they wanted it to say. It happens all too often and is taken as gospel.

I do think that treating meats with chemicals isn't good for you though.

well they can bash all the meat they want with tall tales and BS facts, but I plan on sucking down all the good Iowa corn fed products I can get my pie hole around. Putting cig's in the same category as any type of meat in just irresponsible.

Yep...life causes cancer.  The process of leaving this world begins when we're born.  Between times we're just lucky if it's a long stretch without ailments.

I look at it this way.

 

If you believe in God, creation, and the bible, God told Adam that it was OK to eat the animals and the plants..

 

If you believe in evolution man evolved as an omnivore that eats meat and plants.

 

I'm not going to allow some self-loathing, perpetually unhappy bunch of vegans dictate what I eat.

 

Vegan: Old Indian word that means "poor hunter".

I always thought I would die at the hand of a jelious husband, but I guess "red meat" will have to do!

We have known for decades that the added food additives given to beef, foul and swine has had the potential for cancer causing agents to be present in our processed meats. I remember my dad saying back in the 60s ans 70s that the way the farming and government regulations were going that there would be problems from the invention and limited testing of additives used for fattening of cattle, chickens, turkeys and pigs. It's all about the amount of food that is processed how much can be gotten from a pound of anything we produce in America. My mom and dad back then would only but meats and such from local farms because they knew how the animal was raised and processed. I agree with Oldbuzzards assessment.  We will all still have to buy meats to eat and when we do we know the possibility of the chemicals we eat will cause us harm. That's JM2CW.                                                                                      Roger
