The Dangers of Processed Meats

According to the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF), processed meats are dangerous for human consumption. WCRF has reviewed more than 7,000 clinical studies covering links between diet and cancer, and the conclusions are unequivocal: there is a definite link between processed meats and certain cancers.

The reasons seem to be the fact that processed meats are produced with a carcinogenic ingredient known as sodium nitrite used as a color fixer by meat companies to turn packaged meats a bright red color so they look fresh. To read the article, please visit Processed Meats Declared too Dangerous for Human Consumption:

Once again we learn about one of the unethical practices of the meat industry that causes much disease in humans. Our fast food nation of processed people might not realize the dangers of eating the typical American diet; dangers that carries devastating consequences to our health, God’s animals and the environment. It’s so much easier to eat a well-balanced plant-based diet than dealing with cancer or watching a loved one suffer with this disease!
