(Well maybe not the processors).
DON’T EAT PROCESSED MEATS.
Processed meats include:
- hot dogs
- beef jerky
- and other packaged lunch meats.
These meats are frequently high in calories, saturated fats and sodium. They contain Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and sodium nitrate.
The World Cancer Research Fund in October, 2010 concluded:
'Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption'.
Some studies suggest that eating processed meats may increase your risk of colon, kidney, pancreatic and stomach cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes.
Studies also say that these cancer risks do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats. They only appear in people who regularly
consume processed meat products containing sodium nitrite.
Note: not all processed foods are bad. Milk, for example is a processed food. It is homogenized and pasteurized. More in future blogs.
