Processed meats?

Stay away from processed meats!!

The truth is, processed meats are not a healthful choice for anyone and should be avoided entirely, according to a recent review of more than 7,000 clinical studies examining the connection between diet and cancer! The report was commissioned by The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) using money raised from the general public. Therefore the findings were not influenced by any vested interests, which makes it all the more reliable.

It’s the biggest review of the evidence ever undertaken, and it confirms previous findings: Processed meats increase your risk of cancer, especially bowel cancer, and NO amount of processed meat is “safe.” A previous analysis by the WCRF found that eating just one sausage a day raises your risk of developing bowel cancer by 20 percent!

Other studies have also found that processed meats increase your risk of:

* Colon cancer by 50 percent
* Bladder cancer by 59 percent
* Stomach cancer by 38 percent
* Pancreatic cancer by 67 percent

And that’s not all.

Hot dogs, bacon, salami and other processed meats may also increase your risk of diabetes by 50 percent, and lower your lung function and increase your risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

    Maybe it was paid to widows and orphans only; but I believe I recall Federal funds being sent out to many, many supplicants. Yes, and the Oklahoms City tragedy survivors were unhappy that they hadnt received such largesse.
