WASHINGTON, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Center for Consumer Freedom:
Tomorrow, the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) will announce the results of a five-year examination of various causes of cancer at a Washington, DC press conference. AICR is expected to recommend limiting human intake of specific foods, including red meat.
A spokesman from the Washington-based Center for Consumer Freedom is available to discuss the implications of the AICR report and how it will be twisted by radical single-issue activist groups, including the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
"Whatever happened to 'All things in moderation'?" asked Center for Consumer Freedom Director of Research David Martosko. "The science on food and cancer is inconclusive. For every study suggesting steak will be the death of us, there's another one indicating it doesn't make any difference. Last month Harvard researchers, writing in the journal of the National Cancer Institute, concluded they couldn't even say for sure whether eating more fruits and vegetables would help prevent colon cancer. Giving lean meat the skull-and-crossbones treatment is counterproductive and sends the wrong message to consumers. Unfortunately, this will play right into the hands of animal rights groups and other single-issue extremists."
