Breast Cancer Statistics
"Cancer mortality statistics in 33 countries of the
world were compiled and calculated from data edited from a magnetic tape
copy of the World Health Organization (WHO) data base of cancer
There was a lower but still significant correlation between breast cancer mortality and milk production (R=.55, p=.001). This would support the hypothesis (5.) that estrogens and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) in cow's milk stimulate breast cancer. (see graph below)
Multiple regression analysis showed some additional correlations. A large correlation coefficient (R) and a p value less than .05 suggests that there is a significant statistical relationship between the dietary factor and the disease, although it does not prove that the one causes the other. Negative R values indicate an inverse relationship (e.g. the more vegetable source protein consumption, the lower the incidence of breast cancer).

The Meat Free Zone (MFZ) campaign is intended to make the MeatFreeZone logo as recognizable a symbol as the "Smoke Free Zone". The idea was originally conceived when The WARM Store in Woodstock, NY, was in operation throughout the '90's (Woodstock Animal Rights Movement). The store was truly a meat free zone as it was the first cruelty-free, Vegan, socially conscious animal rights store in the United States. Now that the Vegan and Vegetarian movements have been growing so rapidly, more and more people are showing concern about the food in their diet and their overall health and nutrition. Many people are giving up eating fish, chicken, beef, pork (pigs ), dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream) and eggs. Headlines of Mad Cow disease, E-coli and salmonella are in the news with greater frequency. Vegan and vegetarian recipe cookbooks are standard now in all bookstores and many restaurants have added Vegan and Vegetarian options to their menus. We hope you will help us with the Meat Free Zone campaign by putting the signs up in your homes and workplaces and by spreading them to all the vegetarian and vegan restaurants that you know and frequent. And someday we will have true "meat free zones" in establishments that serve meat. (d-2)
