Good news ilovepizza!
ROME (Reuters) - Gorging pizza could help reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer -- Italian scientists say.
In a twist to the accepted medical wisdom that food you really enjoy tends to be bad for you, researchers at a Milan pharmacology center found that
eating one or more pizzas a week dramatically reduced the incidence of some types of cancer.
A study of 8,000 Italians found that regular pizza-eaters were 59 percent less likely to contract cancer of the esophagus, while the risk of
developing cancer of the colon fell by 26 percent.

I never knew I was such a healthy eater, I do 3 to 4 pizzas a week.
I wonder how pepperoni affects the percentages.
