Cancer findings a bit of a joke

Editor: Johnathan Meyers | Tactical Investor

One of the main reasons we cover such a broad range of topics is because the masses are being systematically brainwashed to see what they are being directed to see. You can only solve the problem if you understand the problem; if you do not, you will either never solve it or continue trending on the path of stupidity forever. To become a good investor, you need to see the full picture and not the snippets that the mass media conveniently and almost gleefully is willing to provide.  Mass psychology states that it is imperative to acknowledge the forest while looking at the tree. In other words, emotions drive the markets, and you need to focus on what emotions Mass Media is trying to stir up to spot the next significant trend. With that in mind, we think you might find the following article to of interest:

Many stocks are trending upwards while key technical indicators move from the overbought to the oversold ranges. If this took place on the daily charts it could be ignored, but, these developments are taking place in the slow-moving monthly charts, and it suggests that a new trend might be about to take hold. Then you have stocks that trend endlessly in the overbought ranges with no sign of letting up, but the stock continues to trend higher and higher. If this trend takes hold, then a plethora of technical analysts will face the ultimate challenge: “Adapt or die”. Stock market Insanity Trend is Gathering Momentum

A new study of 100,000-plus French adults has found that those who eat a lot of processed foods and drink a good deal of sugary drinks are more likely to develop a variety of cancers than those who, say, eat healthy food.

What? You don’t say.

You mean eating chemicals and preservatives and high-sugar crap isn’t good for the body? And neither is sucking down the same through a straw dipped in a high-processed can of soda?

And here we all thought that bright orange snappy cheezy-flavored coating on our crunchy snacks was an organic condensed carrot or something.

“After studying more than 100,000 adults for years, their results showed that eating processed food is more closely linked with cancer risk than one’s age, sex, body mass index, height, level of physical activity, smoking and drinking habits, calories consumed, or family history,” the study found, Business Insider wrote.

Hmm. Turns out, the world’s most harmful foods aren’t really foods at all. They’re balled up, frozen, clumped-together chemicals — and mystery of all mysteries, they’re actually unhealthy.  Full Story

The results, in the British Medical Journal, showed that if the proportion of ultra-processed food in the diet increased by 10%, then the number of cancers detected increased by 12%.

During the study:

  • On average, 18% of people’s diet was ultra-processed
  • On average, there were 79 cancers per 10,000 people each year
  • Upping the proportion of processed food by 10% would lead to nine extra cancers per 10,000 people per year

The researchers concluded: “These results suggest that the rapidly increasing consumption of ultra-processed foods may drive an increasing burden of cancer in the next decades.”

But they said the findings need to “be confirmed by other large-scale” studies and research was needed to establish what could be behind the link. Read more
