Just in time for barbecue season comes a new study about meat eaters showing that eating charred meat, doubles the risk of bladder cancer. Even eating fried fish and chicken can significantly increase the odds.
Other studies have already shown that eating charred meat may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer. Kind of makes a few ants and some clouds seem like trivial problems, huh?
So, given that well-done meats can form chemicals that can increase the risk of cancer and undercooked meats can cause food poisoning, you might want to grill some mouthwatering veggies and mock meats at your next gathering. You want to keep your guests happy and healthy and save the lives of animals—don't you?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
