    There is little I love more than a big, thick, nicely grilled steak. But I do try to watch my consumption, because Mrs. Whitman has long been the Cancer Police.

    Looks like the WHO is now on board, as well:

    Yeah, but smoking pot cures cancer, so it's a wash.

    The good news is hot dogs will probably kill you some other way before you get cancer.

    Your colorectal cancer doesn't trump my constitutional right to eat steak.
