Processed Meats Declared too Dangerous for Human Consumption:

The World Cancer Research Fund recently completed a detailed review of 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer. Upon conclusion they are stepping out and bluntly stating that processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption and consumers should stop buying and eating processed meats.

What are processed meats?
Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and nearly all meat found in prepared frozen meals. Processed meats are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic (linked to promote and cause cancer) ingredient known as sodium nitrate. Sodium nitrate is primarily used as a colour fixer by meat companies to make the packaged meats look bright red and fresh. Monosodium glutamate is also added on a regular basis to enhance the savoury flavour.

    Sometimes I really wonder, we are living in an artificial world... So much awareness needs to be spread, so much work to be done to improve our surroundings and life styles.
