Ha! A good caesar dressing, made table side with the raw egg yolks and anchovies is hard to beat.

Edit: hit send too soon. I was having a discussion about a book written by a doctor who was looking into protein rich diets. Didn't get the name of the book or author, but the guy has traveled the world investigating high cancer rates, especially in children. He went to Malaysia (I think), assuming the poor, malnourished kids would have the highest rates of cancer and found it was actually the rich kids with a protein rich diet. After that the author has done some clinical studies and is a proponent of a vegetarian (or maybe vegan) diet.
My question is cause or correlation? Does the veg diet just afford a higher density of antioxidants and other cancer fighting nutrition? Or does the cooked animal protein actually have enough carcinogens over the long haul to cause cancer?
Need to get the name of the book.
