Everything Is NOT Better With Bacon

 

4093601285_compThe World Health Organization has officially classified processed meats, such bacon, ham and hot dogs as carcinogenic to humans. They also state that other forms of red meat probably are too. No sugar coating, no beating around the bush, just a clear, concise statement that the consumption of these products could, in fact be deadly.

The group cited sufficient evidence that consumption of processed meats can lead to colorectal and stomach cancers. Eating red meat in general has been associated with pancreatic and prostate cancers.

The average American consumes what is now known to be extremely dangerous quantities of meat, as do other cultures. The release of this information, if the warnings are heeded, could lead to a significant decrease in cancer cases annually.

I personally am not a meat eater, but I will certainly be cutting back the amount of meat my family eats, starting today. Will you?
