No, really, it doesn\’t

Small quantities of processed meat such as bacon, sausages or salami can increase the likelihood of dying by a fifth,

The likelihood of dying is one in one. Unity, 100%.

OK, I\’ll give you the Virgin Mary, the Prophet Elijah and even Lazarus Long if you wish. Still indistinguishable from one, the chance of dying.

  1. More bogus fucking correlations from people passing themselves off as “scientists”. It would be wearying if it weren’t for the entertainment value.

  2. The sly subtle suggestion outside of consciousness is that if you don’t eat those things you will live–if not forever then at least for an indeterminate period.

  3. In the small print it says “Scientists added that people who eat a diet high in red meat were also likely to be generally unhealthier because they were more likely to smoke, be overweight and not exercise. ”
    So it is hardly surprising that they are more likely to suffer cancer and heart disease. It is probably nothing to do with eating red meat – the main headline in the article (although, since this is a survey of Americans, the horrendous junk added to hamburgers and hot dogs might be a minor contributory factor).

  4. You’ve forgotten Enoch. And although Lazarus was raised from the dead, that doesn’t mean he didn’t die another day.

  5. Lazarus Long wasn’t raised from the dead, he just didn’t die. Shot in world war one, sure. But rescued. Frances, you might be thinking of a different Lazarus perhaps?

  6. Frances Coppola – “You’ve forgotten Enoch. And although Lazarus was raised from the dead, that doesn’t mean he didn’t die another day.”

    You are way too well educated I am afraid. He is not referring to the Biblical Lazarus, but the rather annoying character Lazarus Long from several Heinlein stories.
