– The UN has finally come out with a verdict on meat, with a report indicating that processed meat like sausages, bacon and ham can cause cancer, with red meat also under suspicion.

The Monday report issued by WHO is set to once again heat up the ongoing debate over the health dangers of a carnivorous diet. The document was released with data from the WHO-operated and France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

Association between red meat & #cancer was observed mainly for colorectal cancer, but assoc were also seen for pancreatic & prostate cancer

Experts concluded that each 50 gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal #cancer by 18%

Its research now says there is “sufficient evidence” to include processed meat into group 1, the same as tobacco, asbestos and…

    oh… never-mind -_-

    • That’s true, Kenneth, but has they say even broken clocks are right twice a day. The cancer link to processed meat is totally consistent with other research I’ve read that’s been saying this for nearly a decade. I also agree with the WHO finding that Roundup is a probable carcinogen – just like scientists have been saying for years. As for red meat, I have concerns that animal fat accumulates all the nasty industrial poisons that have been concentrating in our air, water and food chain since the end of World War II. Though there is little solid evidence how widespread this is.

      Owing to a health condition, I can’t digest vegetable protein – which means I must eat some fish (which is also contaminated), eggs and red meat. However I always stick to organic products – from farms that don’t engage in toxic spraying. I’m not sure how much that protects me but at the moment I don’t seem to have any other choice.

    Thanks for this link, Stuart. My husband has recently been treated for bladder cancer. He loves meat, but usually does not eat great amounts of it. I plan on studying a bit more all this information on cancer.

  3. Oh well, there goes my favourite barbequed sausages. All this health-care is killing me. 😉 Even so, it pays to eat good wholesome food. I avoid most sweets and sugary items. The nr 1 killer it seems.

  4. Gerard, I wish they would quantitate the risk of cancer from meat with age – I have an intuitive sense that people who make it to age 70-75 are at lower risk of cancer generally.
