"Low whole-grain consumption was associated with the largest cancer burden in the US, followed by low dairy intake, high processed-meat intake, low vegetable and fruit intake, high red-meat intake and high intake of sugar-sweetened beverages," Zhang said.
Soooooo you're saying if I eat a lot of refined, bleached white flour, processed meats, skip my fruits & veggies, eat a lot of red meat, and drink a lot of liquid sugar, things aren't gonna go too well for me? :p

I mean you can eat really healthy all your life, avoid drugs and alcohol, casual sex, take lots of exercise. Then you'll get an extra 20 years of decrepatude to hate how you ruined your youth!
