fruits/vegies DON'T prevent cancer

Feeling in a contrarian mood, I am not surprised to read that a study shows that eating increased amounts of fruits and vegetables does not prevent cancer.

This news follows a similar large study that found fiber in a diet does not prevent colon cancer.

Time to face that facts that:
  1. Diet and eating is one of the least affective ways to attempt to medicate the human body and seems to have almost no preventive or protective value.
  2. A large amount of the science behind the healthful (and natural) eating craze of the past 30 years was based on unproven assumptions, i.e., it just sounded so good we knew in our heart (but not in a proven way) it would work.
Once again, the solution to living a healthy life is:
  1. Don't smoke
  2. Drink in moderation
  3. And, fasten your seatbelt when in a car.
