Steve Milloy points out that the MD Anderson Cancer Center can’t cure cancer, so it’s blaming meat for cancer, and then trying to tell people to steer clear of meat and become a vegetarian.
The only problem with that hypothesis is that it’s unproven, and so are the recommendations. In short, there is no credible evidence that vegetarians are any healthier or experience less cancer than carnivores.
Actually, when people eat meat, they are usually omnivorous; people who eat meat are rarely carnivores. Although omnivores eat meat, they eat vegetables and fruit as as well. There are certain amino acids, however, that are present in meat that cannot be obtained food sources other than meat; that was made clear when cats that were fed catfood made of mostly cereal became blind. Cats are carnivores, people – like dogs – are omnivores. The suggestion that people should not eat meat is ridiculous. And the suggestion that people should eat meat to minimize their risk of cancer is even moreso.
