Letter: Meat and cancer

Click to follow
Sir: Your article "Even one burger a day can increase your risk of cancer" misrepresented the views of my organisation. While Dr Michael Hill is a highly respected expert in the field of diet and cancer whose views are certainly worth reporting, he is not a spokesman for the Food and Drink Federation and the views he expressed were personal. FDF has never described the advice from either WCRF's report or the forthcoming Coma report as "totally unjustified".
