Doctor's Note

The previous slaughterhouse worker study I refer to is here: Wart Cancer Viruses In Food. There was also a study suggesting a relationship between cervical cancer and the viruses in meat (Pets & Human Lymphoma), but this is the first time I’ve seen penile cancer studied in this context. If there are so many viruses in chickens, don’t they get into the eggs? That’s coming up next, in Carcinogenic Retrovirus Found in Eggs! See my previous two videos: Chicken Dioxins, Viruses, or Antibiotics? and EPIC Findings on Lymphoma for a discussion of meat lymphoma risk.

    On Youtube, the link to this page is incorrect because the word ‘and’ is connected to the end of the link.

    Thanks for another good video.

    Dear Michael Greger M.D.

    My family and I have recently started eating a plant based diet; we have chosen to be fairly strict which has been difficult for my two boys 7 & 8. We will muddle through however. I have tried to explain the risks of eating meat to them, including cancer. Last month my oldest son’s class was visited by a “healthy eating” presenter from K-State. So, my son proceeded to lecture them on the dangers of meat and tried to tell them that eating chicken could cause cancer. The presenter dismissed his statement and told him “well probably not”. My son was very embarrassed. He has also been made fun of for taking things like whole raw mushrooms and black bean refried bean dip with some goodies mixed in. Anyway, I am looking for just a couple of studies that I can print off for him to take to school tomorrow as the presenters are returning. I am afraid that my son is going to associate our new lifestyle with negative experiences and be unhappy. I want him to build a healthy dietary lifestyle that will last a lifetime. Any help would be greatly appreciated should you find this post in time.

    Kind Regards,
    Roy T. Lingenfelter
