Have Scientists Developed A Pizza That Prevents Cancer?
I sure hope this is true, because if eating pizza is actually a healthy habit, then SIGN ME UP TWICE!
A team of scientists and chefs in Italy say they've developed a pizza that can help prevent cancer and heart disease.
The pizza is made with a wheat flour dough and uses lots of cherry tomatoes, broccoli rabe, olives, garlic, and chilies as toppings. It also uses a lot of olive oil.
You probably noticed there are three ingredients I didn't mention: Cheese, sauce, or meat. It doesn't include any of those. It also doesn't include pineapple, so sorry to all the people who passionately defend that topping. Gross.
But the team says if you eat this pizza a few times a week, the ingredients can help reduce your odds of developing cancer.
Of course, it's not a guarantee, but it seems like there's no real downside to giving it a shot: Best case scenario, no cancer...worst case scenario, you just ate a bunch of pizza!
IT'S A WIN, WIN!
