Communication, PR and IARC about the recent advice on meat

http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2015/pdfs/pr240_E.pdf
After the suprising Lancet Oncology abstract without the substance, here is a .pdf which is another PR piece of the puzzle. And all of that for a bunch of foods very different from each other that we call processed meatS...
Indeed there is no such food as a processed meat, there are millions of processed meatS.
look at this:

You can easily understand that any conclusion is about processed meatS is completely impossible due to the complexity and number of processes.
This survey although biased by a question is sufficiently clear: physicians are not sheeps.
Details:
The question for those who will not change anything is biased.
1/ they will either do that way because they did since a long time advice their patients about the potential risk of processed meatS cooked above the flame OR because they don't believe at all the IARC analysis of the past literature.
2/ a better question would have take in account this ambivalence.
3/ any advice in medicine which is not personalized is waste of time and money. If your patient eats less than 50g/d of processed meatS why focusing his or her energy on this topic? Less than 18% of RR is nothing and this patient should have other goals for a better health.
