raw egg virus might cause cancer

5.11: news.health/raw egg virus might cause cancer:
Michael Greger, M.D.:
the risk for cancers of the blood and bone marrow,
such as non-Hodgkins lymphoma, various leukemias,
and myeloma (more details in my 2 min. video
EPIC Findings on Lymphoma).
Chicken consumption appeared the most hazardous,
associated with up to triple the cancer rates
for every 50 grams of daily poultry consumption
—that’s just a quarter of a chicken breast worth!
Why was there so much more lymphoma and leukemia risk
among those eating just a small serving of chicken a day?
As detailed in my 2 min. video
Chicken Dioxins, Viruses, or Antibiotics?,
the association between poultry and cancer
may be explained by the presence of
drugs, industrial carcinogens such as dioxins,
and/or the presence of oncogenic (cancer-causing) viruses.
In Poultry and [human] Cancer
I present the largest study to date
on poultry workers and cancer mortality,
which found a whopping 8-fold increased risk of
dying from penile cancer compared to controls,
a finding thought due to chicken virus exposure,
raising broader food safety concerns.
If chickens can be infected with
viruses linked to cancer in consumers,
then what about eggs?

These cancer-causing viruses found in chicken and eggs
are utterly destroyed by proper cooking,
so the primary risk of infection
would presumably be associated with
cross-contamination,
such as when mixing cake batter,
handling raw poultry, or even just
touching meat or shopping carts .
-- #oops that's my #raw #egg #diet, falling on my face!
6.5: yea but
you're already cancer-fried by touching shopping carts?!
don't forget your high-dose selenium!
and your hormonic(low-insulin), low-glycemic diet!!
