Letter to the editor: WHO right to speak the truth on meat
Placeholder Image
From Vance Gordon Monroe To the editor: Thank you to the World Health Organization for having the courage to speak truth to power: meat, like cigarettes and asbestos, does cause cancer. No U.S. health agency would ever say this for fear of losing Congressional funding. The World Cancer Research Fund and a number of other international health agencies have been advising for years that meat consumption raises the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, but the WHO panel was actually able to determine a causal effect.
