That Meatless Monday routine you’ve been trying to adopt may do your cardiovascular system some good, but according to new research from The Cancer Institute of New Jersey, it has little bearing on your chances of developing breast cancer.

In what experts are calling the first examination of African-American women and how their consumption of meat impacts their breast cancer risk, researchers found that the link between eating meat and developing breast cancer actually varies by race.

    People stay studying black women, I see fat folk of all shades and colors on my campus, why don’t you “study” them.

    I don’t think it’s JUST black women. I think it has to do with culture. I currently live in Atlanta, and know plenty of people who don’t consider it a meal unless there is meat involved.

      I don’t either. it’s called a balanced meal. Everything shld be done in moderate proportion.


    Because we need meat on our “bones”?!? Nothing is wrong with meat; God made everything healthy and pure. It’s money hungry men who put all kinds of hormones and pesticides for the animals to eat hence making us sick once consumed. They are poisoning us slowing with their manufactured genetically altered food.
