Is insecticide not worse than meat?

Published 02/11/2015

REGARDING the report that processed meat can increase the chance of bowel cancer, my brother's neighbour was a vegetarian and died of bowel cancer while still in her thirties.

I was diagnosed this year with bowel cancer. Thankfully, after a successful operation, I am now recovering.

I did not smoke, drink or eat a lot of meat. Can the experts explain that?

We are told to eat more fruit and vegetables. What about the amount of chemicals and sprays to kill off insects?
