In order to determine what causes lung cancer, among people who do not smoke, Nobel Prize winner, Harald Zur Hausen, MD has been studying and recently released new findings. He gave a presentation at the World Conference on Lung Cancer in Austria noting that "exposure to meat pathogens increases risk of rare forms of lung cancer," noted the source piece fromVegNews.com. The article goes on, "His findings indicate that slaughterhouse workers, butchers, and others exposed to animal carcasses, inhale oncogenic viruses—or viruses that can lead to cancer cell formation." In fact, just last year, the World Health Organization noted that processed meat is just as bad as tobacco, classifying it into the same carcinogenic category.
