  1. Per the American Cancer Society:

    > Overall, the lifetime risk of someone developing colon cancer is 5%. To put the numbers into perspective, the increased risk from eating the amount of processed meat (50g every day) in the study would raise average lifetime risk to almost 6%.

    Am I missing something here? Is that a problem? It seems as far as risk assessments go you’re probably fine in moderation. I assume if you are eating bacon wrapped hot dogs multiple times per day that you’re probably running into other health concerns anyway.

  2. If this is validated it’s great for so many reasons. Knotweed is damn near impossible to get rid of in areas where it’s an invasive species, so it would be nice to know that there is some utility to a plant that is the bane of many of our existences. I eat it as a forager, but in general, while it’s taken over where I live, at least I’ve been able to keep it off my property. But this would be a really nice “But hey, I can help you even though you hate me” moment for Japanese Knotweed. 🙂
