"A large study of 500,000 U.S. retirees has found that just one extra serving of fruit or vegetables a day may reduce the risk of developing head and neck cancer."

Here's my favorite part: "'It may not sound like news that vegetables protect from cancer, but there is actually some controversy in the literature. It is important that we do these large studies,' said Dr. Alan Kristal, associate head of the cancer prevention program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle." Yeah, there's a big controversy, all right. More like polluting of the literature by animal-food-industry "studies" designed to do no more than confuse the public and delay the day when "the literature" could be considered unanimous. Any scientist today who finds it "controversial" that plant foods protect againsts multiple cancers should have their scientificking license removed.
