This book is by far one of the most powerful and important books I have every read in my entire life. It is my opinion that it should be required reading for everyone before they are allowed to graduate from high school. Everyone who eats food needs to read this book.

The Vegetarian Myth by Lierre Keith
If you need more convincing, please read:
Hi, I have been following your blog for a while. I read also other pages about paleo and some of them (ie The Paleo Mom) say that meat indeed promotes cancer, but vegies (mostly green) protect us against that influence. Nora Gedgaudas in Primal body Primal mind says to be very careful about amounts of meat as it increases our aging rate and so on.
What are your thoughts about it? Thank you in advance.
I have read a lot, including Nora – whom I highly respect – but I do not find any evidence that meat causes cancer. You may wish to read The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz which explains the flawed science in great detail. You can also visit my Resources page by clicking on the link at the top of my blog and see a wealth of books, articles, interviews and presentations to explore.

I think meat is a carcinogen from results of peer reviewed studies but it’s dairy that is much worse.
I suggest to read this analysis of the research by Dr. Georgia Ede
