You're wrong. That is exactly what this is saying (I've seen too many press releases just like it). An increase in risk of 33% means that your risk is 1.33 times normal. If your normal risk is 3 in 10 (30%), it becomes 4 in ten (40%). If it was originally 3 in 10,000 (.03%), it becomes 4 in 10,000 (.04%). That's how risk factors work.
Give me a break. What was the average life expectancy before 1900, like 45?
The reason cancer and heart disease rates have risen is because we conquered infection through sanitation, antibiotics, vaccination, and pasteurization and now people are dying at an older age from different causes. People have to die from something.
So God gave us canines so we would get cancer. Please.
Oh well there's fish and chicken :-)
God didn't give you canines. They are an adaptation of meat eating. If human beings never sinned, we'd be vegetarian according to the Bible.
We are omnivores, and that's the way God intends us to eat until Jesus comes back. BTW, Jesus and the apostles ate red meat. If it was good enough for them, it's good enough for me :o)
Didja ever hear of a lion or tiger with stomach cancer?
Highly unlikely they ate processed McDonald's beef. The typical ME diet back then was lots of fish and vegetables. I don't think God intended the Chinese Buffet though. that's just pure gluttony.
A lion is eating fresh,raw meat. Not fried to death beef with god knows what added in.
I'll add that the death rate is still 100%. We'll all die someday. I'm off to enjoy this beautiful day.
well, Ruth's Chris is to die for... that's my motto...
LOL. I've not seen that at Chinese buffets, but at Ponderosa. (Sorry, Ponderosa people, also Bonanza.) The very last time I ate at Ponderosa, there were a trio of very, very large people. They were hoarding the chicken wings (it was chicken wing Tuesday) and were actually relaying the wings in massive quantities back to their booth, complete with shouting backing and forth and rushing up as the cook came out with another giant vat of wings. It wasn't crowded, they weren't booted out, and I never ate there again. This wasn't the first time it had happened before at this Ponderosa, but it was the worst.

Now there's some sound wisdom and sage advice worth listening to! :o)
That's a great point. I also wonder about the difference between organic meat and meat from animals that have been repeatedly dosed with every kind of drug.
I eat vegetarian, but I think reasonable amounts of uncontaminated red meat won't hurt someone who eats other foods and exercises.
