"eating right can HELP MITIGATE THE OCCUENCES OF CANCERS DUE TO WHAT YOU EAT" - Tftfy...
Eat all the healthy foods you like, it won't do jack for cancers caused by other factors like smoking, drinking, overtanning, etc... And this is just the kind of ignorance that this nasty piece of excrement posing as a human being expolited when peddling her snake oil.
Personally I hope that she gets tied up in lawsuits based off this for the rest of her miserable life.

Plus, the banks involved won't even lose out cos' the governments will declare them "Too big to fail" and bail them out from the endless pot of money that governments just pull out of their asses without any source. So it's totally a victimless crime, right? So we should all do this then everyone will have infinite money and live happy ever after...

But then again there are junctions in the UK where you can get trapped into either stopping in a box junction or running a red light - either of which gets you a fine.

In the case of the Chicago cameras though I'm sure they'll publicly spin it up as a success in that clearly the cameras have had their deterrent effect while privately cursing the fact that their money tree isn't patching the budget holes like they wanted.
