Everything causes cancer, apparently. Just look at labels in California. The key word is in the headline "possibly". That means we don't know and we're just guessing. People that eat meat get cancer. There has to be a correlation. My bet is those same people would get cancer anyway, meat or not.

Another utterly meaningless and uninformative spewing of junk science and health scares by the Harvard School of Public Health. Correlation is not causation and this study is about as meaningless a health scare as ever put to print. If you're worried about this then you should also be worried about space aliens and government mind control.

Heavenly Father gave us good directions in D&C 89 12 Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;

13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine.

It always amazes me how long it has taken the scientists to catch up with Spiritual knowledge issued in 1833.

The studies keep piling up that we need to avoid over consumption of some foods. A Chinese study identified eating more than 4 ounces of red meat a day increased the likelihood of stomach and bowel cancer by 18%.
