The Guardian has the story, noticing that a string of three reports, from 2001, 2003, and 2004, all led by Silvano Gallus of the Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche in Milan, shows that habitually eating pizza may be healthier than you think.

The 2001 study shows that, unlike other Italian meals, pizza does not necessarily cause clogged arteries. The 2003 study shows that pizza may help prevent cancer. The 2004 study says that it either helps prevent — or at least does not cause — heart attacks.

I can't wait till my wife reads this.

Oh, wait! Crap:

All of this pertains to Italian-made pizza, metabolised in Italy. No matter how accurate the scientists' interpretations turn out to be, there's no guarantee that they hold true for foreign pizza, or for any pizza eaten anywhere by foreigners.

Let's hope the ol' lady didn't read past the jump! ;)
