You read that wrong. The persons they are talking about are the farmers and slaughter house workers. Lots of people killed by cows every year. Eat less meat, reduce workers to raise and butcher cows, lower a persons risk of death.
"But, as far as I can tell, it has absolutely nothing to do with what we're talking about here, which is the ridicule of bad science"
Sorry again. I was replying to you, who was replying to nasch, who said "But who is helped by calling names? And that's the part that I'm referring to." I didn't realize moron only referred to bad science.
