Isn't "self-murder" just suicide? It's an interesting article, his word choice just confused me.

I agree. The "agenda" component made it an odd read.

It also isn't exactly "news" that eating hotdogs, bacon, sausage and hamburger is less than healthy. I seem to remember hearing that about 20 or 30 years ago.

Seems a bit dim-witted that a university spent 28 years doing a study to prove what we already know. What is going to be their next big revelation?...After a 40 year study they have "discovered" that walking in traffic on the interstate increases your chance of being run over?

Isn't that quoting the same source as the first linked article?

Not exactly the first one is from the ajc the second is from fox, but they are pretty much saying the same thing.

No, I mean aren't both the AJC and Fox articles quoting the same study? It takes like 10 minutes for the AJC website to open for me but it sounded like the same info...a college study, 28 years, 20% died, etc.

my 1 line summary:
"bacon will give you a heart attack"

in other news, the sky is still blue and fire is hot ;)

bacon will give you a heart attack if you do nothing, same goes for red meat. nothing wrong with it. once you add personal health choices, unknown health issues, and how much consumed, these facts don't hold much.

same thing was said about eggs, then that changed, same thing about coffee, now that has changed.

i agree if you are unhealthy and do not exercise, and over eat, then it is bad, but so if everything at that point.
