What’s the “worst” food for avoiding colon cancer?
In the December edition of Nutrition Action Health Letter, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) spotlights foods that are the “best” and “worst” for “preventing colon cancer.”
CSPI says the “worst” foods for avoiding colon cancer are “red or processed meats” like bacon, hot dogs, sausage, lunch meats, beef, pork and lamb.
But as Steve Milloy pointed out in his January 2005 FoxNews.com column “No Beef Behind Red-Meat Cancer Scare”, the meat-cancer link is more agenda-driven science — like the agenda of a vegetarian researcher at the National Cancer Institute.
