Barely a day passes without the media reporting that some food, we've consumed from the beginning of time, now causes cancer. Oh, that’s right. They seldom use the C-word as in causation, instead, they’ll say something more palatable; that is, it has been linked to cancer. But all too often these stories are based on only a single study or are baseless when applied to humans. Still, just a few days ago, a California Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle ruled in favor of caution. Berle stated: “Defendants failed to satisfy their burden of proving … that consumption of coffee confers a benefit to human health. “Not that the coffee makers had to prove coffee was linked to cancer, but instead to prove its health benefits. Excuse me! Has any judge ever forced the sugar or alcohol industries to satisfy their burden of proof by providing scientific evidence proclaiming the health benefits of sugar and alcohol? For every study that links something to cancer, there seems to be an alternate one that not only disproves that hypothesis but extols the health benefits of that very food.
