What's the current time-lag between us laughing at yank lunacy, and some 'doctor' advocating the same prodnosing interference this side of the pond as well?
About 5 years, give or take?
If so, expect this sort of thing from the Royal College of Physicians in around 2014.
KFC Sued Over Grilled Chicken
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has sued Kentucky Fried Chicken over a carcinogen, PhIP, which the nutrition advocacy group says is in KFC's new grilled chicken. PhIP is a compound on California's list of carcinogens that is created when meat is grilled.
"Grilled chicken can increase the risk of cancer, and KFC consumers deserve to know that this supposedly healthy product is actually just as bad for them as high-fat fried chicken," said Neal D. Barnard, M.D., the president of PCRM, on the group's Web site. "KFC should post warnings because its aggressively marketed new product harbors a chemical that increases the risk of breast cancer, prostate cancer and other forms of this lethal disease."
You know, the flame-grilled thingy. Like the darkened bits on your barbecued meat.
But KFC says the chemical poses no health risk.
"The chemical referenced by PCRM is a natural byproduct of grilling chicken and many other foods, and occurs whether such foods are grilled in any restaurant or even at home," KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said in a statement.
Yeah, that's the stuff. Cancerous now, doncha know. And you must be prevented from ever consuming anything you enjoy, if it poses so much as an inkling of a negligible risk, d'you see?
That is what doctors are for, apparently.
