Cancer and Diet

Usually articles on science in the popular press are pretty bad. Robert Weinberg, possibly the biggest name in cancer research, has an interesting article on diet and cancer in newsweek though. Essentially the point is something is wrong in the western diet, or possibly lifestyle, that is causing many of the worst types of cancer.

Since we don't really know what it is it is really quite hard to adjust against it. However avoiding heavily processed foods that didn't exist a century ago is probably a good starting point.
