Our take: Don't throw out all the food in your kitchen because it has been said to cause cancer. Researchers studied various ingredients with cancer-causing claims that didn't have convincing evidence to back it up. Genevra Pittman, journalist for Reuters discloses the scientists' findings:
"Studies suggesting that everything from cinnamon to lobster either raises or lowers a person's risk of cancer may sometimes be a bunch of baloney, a new report suggests.
Researchers created a list of 50 random food items, then found studies from the last 35 years that claimed risks or benefits for the majority them. But most of the claims were based on weak evidence."
