“Processed meats too dangerous for humans”
LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Then God said, `I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.’ And it was so…” (Genesis 1:29-30, the Holy Bible).
“PROCESSED MEATS TOO DANGEROUS FOR HUMANS”: In the interest of public service, we are reprinting here parts of an article published by www.realfarmacy.com on May 29, 2013, which is headlined “processed meats too dangerous for human consumption”. The entire article can be read at http://www.realfarmacy.com/processed-meats-too-dangerous-for-human-consumption/#pi21160Tggpvwv0I.99.
Read on: “The World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) has completed a detailed review of more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer.
“Bottom line: Processed meats are too dangerous for human consumption. Consumers should stop buying and eating all processed meat products for the rest of their lives.
PROCESSED MEATS LACED WITH CANCEROUS SUBSTANCE: “Processed meats include bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, packaged ham, pepperoni, salami and virtually all red meat used in frozen prepared meals. They are usually manufactured with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite.
“This is used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. Unfortunately, sodium nitrite also results in the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines in the human body. And this leads to a sharp increase in cancer risk for those who eat them.
“A 2005 University of Hawaii study found that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent.3 Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent.
EATING FRESH, NON-PROCESSED MEATS IS BETTER: “These are alarming numbers. Note 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. Sodium nitrite appears predominantly in red meat products (you won’t find it in chicken or fish products).
“Here’s a short list of food items to check carefully for sodium nitrite and monosodium glutamate (MSG), another dangerous additive: beef jerky, bacon, sausage, hot dogs, sandwich meat, frozen pizza with meat, canned soups with meat, frozen meals with meat, ravioli and meat pasta foods.
“Kid’s meals containing red meat, sandwich meat used at popular restaurants,
nearly all red meats sold at public schools, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and theme parks.”
