How Many Times A Week Do You Eat Cancer?

Vernon Coleman

Animals get cancer (just as humans do).

Cows, sheep, pigs and other animals all get cancer.

So, how do you know, when you cut into a steak, a lamb chop or a piece of ham, that there isn't a lump of cancer inside your steak, chop or ham?

How do you know that your burger or sausage doesn't contain ground up bits of cancer?

You don't.

As your knife cuts into the meat you could well be cutting into a lump of cancer. The piece of meat you raise to your mouth, on the end of your fork, could well contain a tumour.

Indeed, now that animals are increasingly likely to have been `fed' or `treated' with carcinogenic chemicals, this risk gets greater every year. Farmers and butchers claim that animals are checked before they're slaughtered. But they can't possibly see what is happening inside an animal's tissues.

You won't be able to see the lump of cancer either, of course.

But you'll be eating it. So will everyone else who eats meat.

And I thought you'd like to know.

P.S. You will never forget this warning. Every time you eat a piece of meat (or see someone else cut into a piece of meat) you will much cancer am I eating today?
