An experienced butcher admits: “When we see cancer in the pork, we just cut it and still sell it to customers”

Most people end up believing exactly what they want to believe, and that includes the truth about the food that they are shoving into their faces.

This guy said he’s been a butcher for 30 years and when he sees cancer in the pork he just cut it out then they still sell the meat to customers. Smh.

Urban Air Pollution Negates Health Benefits Of A Long Walk On City Streets

Air pollution on city streets can wipe out the beneficial health effects of exercise for people aged 60 and older, according to a new study led by scientists at Duke University and Imperial College London. Short-term exposure to traffic exhaust in built-up areas like New York City’s Broadway or Chicago’s Michigan Avenue can cancel out the positive effects a two-hour walk would otherwise have on the hearts and lungs of these older adults, according to the findings, published Tuesday in medical journal The Lancet.
