WHO says hot dogs, bacon cause cancer. Does this mean we should all become vegetarian

    From what I've read, the report said an 18% higher chance of cancer, not an 18% chance of cancer. I'll take the risk. Life without red meat wouldn't really be satisfying.

    Actually, red meat is the back bone of feeding, so i think we should to make balance of meat feeding, and try to eat more natural meat rather than caned meat

    dear Independant thinker , i guess the main concept of the study is processed meat as general whatever type of meat.

    means we should tax processed meat like cigarettes I guess... 500% tax for a hamburger?

    never mind the longest people to have ever lived were meat eating smokers..... :)

    side note, I hear the sun can cause cancer too....

    interesting article

    'Nanotechnology: Should carbon nanotubes be handled in the workplace like asbestos?"

    http://blogs.cdc.gov/niosh-science-blog/2008/05/20/nano/

    especially sense this month they found out we probably ALL have carbon nano-tubes in our lungs from catalytic converters in our cars

    http://www.kurzweilai.net/carbon-na...s-from-airways-of-asthmatic-children-in-paris

    "A car’s catalytic converter, which turns toxic carbon monoxide into safer emissions, bears at least a passing resemblance to the Rice-invented high-pressure carbon monoxide, or HiPco, process to make carbon nanotubes, he said. “So it is not a big surprise, when you think about it,” Wilson said."

    "“It’s kind of ironic. In our laboratory, working with carbon nanotubes, we wear facemasks to prevent exactly what we’re seeing in these samples, yet everyone walking around out there in the world probably has at least a small concentration of carbon nanotubes in their lungs,” he said."

    Since nothing that enters a lab doesn't increase the risk for cancer, I am inclined to believe we should be focusing in on whether bunsen burners, lab coats, and/or microscopes are the real cause of cancer.
