Another reason (as if you needed one) to eat chicken with the skin on

While looking up some Wikipedia-generated definitions of broilers vs. roasters, I came across this interesting section:

"...according to a 2006 Harvard School of Public Health study of 135,000 people, people who ate grilled skinless chicken 5 or more times a week had a 52 percent higher chance of developing bladder cancer compared to people who didn’t. However, such strong associations were not found in individuals regularly consuming chicken with skin intact."

If you're going to eat chicken, eat the skin!!
