LETTERS: Hogwash

No more oink. No more moo - moo. Red meat is cancerous for me and you.

Peculiar it is that in all the past years trying to find a cure for cancer that science now tells the public that red meat should be added to the list that causes cancer,  yet science can’t find a cure.

Strange when the flu season arrives a Genie magically arrives with a bag full of needle’s along with a preventative cure for some. The public is bombasted with all kinds of pills that I believe are impossible to cure all people as we all have a different DNA. One size, colour or shape of a pill does not cure all, but the cost of chance can put a dent in the wallet or purse of many believer’s. I tend to believe that once clear of the baby assembly line we are all stamped with an expiry date which has no trade clause or cure making mankind once again equal.

No more oink. No more moo – moo. Red meat is cancerous for me and you. Eat more chicken toss the stew; red meat is cancerous for me and you.
