You’ve probably seen Week's headlines, about the fact that (***)>> processed meat has been classified as a ‘definite’ cause of cancer. And red meat is a ‘probable’ cause. FOR me this news it not new news,Haven't we known this for like 20 years? And guess what-- What to avoid: .. and any suggestion about nutrition from the government. it's just another bunch of stuff that later will be proved as "wrong" . Simply this report seems to target meats that are related to (1)>> pork. ANYHOW do any of you remember how a few bureaucrats can try to control what you eat . Do you remember the nonsense about eggs ? They used to tell you that eggs were bad for , the government (USA) spent over a billion dollars in the decades of the 1990's with propaganda as I would call it.warning about our egg consumption . Most of the dietary recommendations were made before the science could verify. However, the politicians did not want to wait because of the length of time good nutrition research takes. Also, a lot of the old science and recommendations were based on nutrition questionnaires of the subjects. As a report by an international World Health Organization describes the relationship between processed food in specific and red meat in general and various kinds of cancer. The headlines, of course, have been blunt. CNN Money phrases it this way: “Processed meat causes cancer, says (3)>>WHO.” The results of the majority of popularly-published American food studies have been proven false after the fad fades away: saturated fats are bad, eggs and cholesterol are bad, red meat is bad for you, etc.... all of it is pure bunk. What is bad? lots of salt and lots of sugar-- two thing that are normally hard to find in our natural food sources. Yes, today American meat is bad for you: beef is fed corn and other grains, which cattle don't eat-- they eat grass. As a result, bad fat ratio (omega-3:6) and same with soy-fed chickens. Industrial meat and food is just bad for you. Do we really need to swear off bacon?You get, “Red wine is good for you.” Then, “You know what? Maybe antioxidants aren’t so good for you.” Or, “Eggs are terrible for you.” Then, “Maybe eggs aren’t so terrible for you.” but I still am confused regarding the definition. beef jerky, smoked turkey breast and salt cod, for example, are processed according to the text I've read. but it isn’t mentioned in any news. are they included in the report or not? are the harmful chemicals added to the meat in the process, or are they naturally synthesized by the process itself? From what I understand; these figures come from the UK. How does the UK compare to other countries with high processed meat consumption like Germany (Sausages) and France (Saucisson)?How do these countries compare to low pork diet countries such as Israel and Arab countries? Is there a significantly lower percentage of bowel cancer cases in predominantly Kosher and Halal consumer populations?Could you tell me how fresh sausages cause cancer? Mince meat itself is not classed as processed meat so presumably there is no risk associated with fresh sausages in artificial casing (mince meat, herbs and spices). Is it because toxic preservatives are used to prevent bacteria growing on the hog, sheep or beef casings used for sausages? Therefore do you, Cancer research, recommend using artificial casing instead of natural ones, or simply could you suggest a less (2)>> carcinogenic preservative to use?Is there another way of curing meat without using Nitroso compounds (Sodium or Potassium Nitrates)? From what I have read the Sodium Nitrites are much less toxic than using saltpeter, are they also less cancerous? The other thing to follow going forward is how the information will be polarized. You’ll get the vegan and vegetarian community using this in their arsenal of why we should avoid meat. And to be fair, there are more arrows in that quiver. And you’ll see people who love their meat and love their bacon cherry-picking, saying it’s all just one study. It will be interesting to see that polarization, because it’s certainly happened in the past.
Everything is "bad" for YOU!
Everything is "bad" for YOU!
All of us in this ( 4)>> MODERN WORLD are now subjected to "processed food" no mater what it is exactly . You can't just look at salami , and bacon as bad for you , if you take the fear mongering WHO report that processed meats caused cancer . Remember that The WHO has come to the conclusion on the advice of its International Agency for Research on Cancer, which assesses the best available scientific evidence. It has now placed processed meat in the same category as plutonium, but also alcohol as they definitely do cause cancer. Just more stating of the obvious, we've been told for decades that large amounts of processed and red meat is bad for us. Processed meats are cheaper than healthy alternatives for some strange reason. You can say how cheap it is to make a salad, but lettuce ain’t gonna give you anything but water, and you’re gonna have to eat like 24 cups of broccoli to get the same amount of protein as 10 oz hamburger meat. There is little doubt why the present controversies around processed meat as much "food" in our diet . Because the average person, including politicians, is not trained in the science they are often fooled into believing the results of these publications. The vast majority of these non-credible science publications report on inappropriately conducted experiments or research. As a group they suffer from an assortment of inadequacies. My conclusion is All foods carry some risk to some people.
So Starve ...............
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
(***)>> processed meat . 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. Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21 percent. 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.(1)>> pork .For a long time, people were cool with bacon. They put it in BLTs, they dipped it in their egg yolks, they laid it across their baked beans. They liked bacon, but they did not worship it. It was just another tasty foodstuff. Then, the anti-fat diet craze of the 1980s happened, and all of a sudden people were not cool with bacon, because people (wrongly, it turns out) believed that bacon's fat content (it's like 60 percent fat) made it a particular nutritional hazard.This damaged the pork industry, because suddenly pork belly What kind of red meat? The discussion and blaming of red meat for cancer is meaningless unless you specify whether its grass-fed or corn fed beef, which are night and day different in their fatty acid composition. It is quite clear that 98% of the beef consumed in this country is unhealthy corn-fed, antibiotic and synthetic estrogen-laced. Grass fed beef that I eat and my parents and grandparents ate is associated with better health due to its high omega 3 fatty acid composition. They all lived into their 90's and I am in my mid-60's in excellent health, cancer free despite eating a LOT of red meat my entire life. Classifying beef with bacon, pastrami and hot dogs as "processed" is only true for the inhuman CAFO operations so prevalent in this country. Cattle grazing on grass is hardly "processed" and certainly NOT carcinogenic. (2)>>carcinogenic. The World Health Organization maintains classes of carcinogenicity. 1A means it is a known human carcinogen, it does not give any information about how carcinogenic it is. There are categories like, suspected human carcinogen, known animal carcinogen, and it goes on.All they did was officially put processed meats into 1A, known human carcinogen. The only reason this matters is that there are US Regulations based on these categories. For example, California Prop 65 requires labeling of all products "Known by the state of California to cause cancer". You guessed it, this is one of the lists cited in the regulation. Bacon will be labeled in California (3)>>WHO. The meat industry will definitely suffer if red meat is labeled probably carcinogenic. Last year, sales of sugar fell after the WHO warned that eating too much sweet was hazardous to health. They evaluated over 800 studies analyzing associations between more than a dozen forms of cancer with the consumption of processed or red meat in different countries and among populations with diverse diets. ( 4)>> MODERN WORLD. Woody Allen demolished all this healthy eating bollocks definitively in his 70s comedy Sleeper, where Allen wakes up far in the future to find that everything he had been told was bad for him in 70s America had been discovered to be, in fact, just the ticket for a healthy mind in a healthy body.
