Red Meat & Lymph Node Cancer

Here is some new information on red meat and especially hamburger...and of course it's not good.

Researchers from Iowa reporting in the Journal Of The American Medical Association have found that older women who have diets high in meat and animal fat, especially hamburger, have an increased risk of getting lymph node cancer.....The disease from which Jackie Kennedy died.

They also found there may be a protective effect against this condition by eating fruits.

I guess there may be some truth after all in that apple a day story.
