    Now i know we all love a good chuckle at the daily mail!

    Just came across this group on facebook listing the things the daily mail has reported cause cancer! It links to the related stories as well.

    Personal favs include:

    Candle lit dinners
    Childlessness
    Babies (yes, bit of a paradox that one)
    False nails
    Shaving
    Skiing
    Talcum Powder
    Wi-Fi
    Wocestershire Sauce!


    Just thought it would amuse some of you

    I quite like that they include being male and being female (Although if you look at the article it applies to smokers =P) as well as every food type, or being too thin. :facepalm: So essentially, don't worry about it. There's nothing you can do

    That group's retarded.

    Quite a lot of what it claims is rubbish, when you actually read the links...

    Most of the food-related ones are well documented and were reported in elsewhere, and are references to toxins and contaminants that have found their way in to food unknowingly, and have since been outlawed.

    E.g. the claim by the group that the Daily Mail claims that baby food causes cancer is actually:
    Baby food firms have been warned to change the seals on their jars amid fears of contamination by a cancer-causing toxin.
    Food safety chiefs have demanded similar action on a range of products from ketchup to pasta sauce.

    The moves, announced yesterday by the European Food Safety Authority, follow the discovery of the chemical semicarbazide in glass jars and bottles of fruit juices, jams, honey, pickles, vegetables, mayonnaise, mustard, sauces and ketchup.
    E.g. a EU move to outlaw certain substances from baby food jars, which is sensible.

    According to the group, the Daily Mail claims sausages also cause cancer, but the newspaper report states:
    A European food watchdog said it was no longer safe to eat products containing the additive Red 2G after tests showed it caused cancer in rats and mice.
    The red dye - also known as E128 - is most often used in cheap sausages and burgers to give the impression of a higher meat content.

    The warning was issued by the European Food Safety Authority which said the colorant was a "safety concern".

    It's a well known scientific fact that everything ever gives you cancer. Humans are naturally meant to live to 250 but all the worcester sauce and children are killing us off.

    So basically, the very act of existing gives us cancer.

    Yes but the point is that the Mail reports it in such a sensationalised way and distorts the information to such a degree that it becomes a parody of itself. While also giving much publicity to half baked theories and treating them as gospel.

    It kind of went part-way there with the "being a black person" one.

    But I'm also surprised it didn't do the full monty.

    Still, life according to the Daily Fail means that we should just kills ourselves now, otherwise we'll die of terrorist-induced cancer in broken britain's immigrant-run NuLab hospitals :rolleyes:
