You will problably have heard that new research by a team at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, claims that eating fruit and vegetables does not significantly reduce the risk of cancer - http://bit.ly/aaXQ9w
More than 400,000 people were involved in the respected EPIC trial from across Europe, including Britain and the results are published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.
I do not know what the methodology of the research was but, off the cuff, I wonder whether the research incorporated one or more test groups of people who don't eat meat, and haven't done so for a significant period of time, say twenty years?
It'd be great to hear informed opinions on this matter.
