Bacon And Sausages As Big A Cancer Threat As Cigarettes, WHO Report Warns

Post by feelthelove on Mon Oct 26, 2015 7:13 pm



The World Health Organisation (WHO) has today warned that processed meats such as bacon and sausages are as big a cancer threat as cigarettes.

The health authority has placed cured and processed meats in the same category as carcinogenic substances such as asbestos, alcohol, arsenic and tobacco.

Red meat is also "probably" carcinogenic, with associations mainly with bowel cancer, but also with pancreatic cancer and prostate cancer, according to the report

The report found eating 50g of processed meat a day (one sausage or two rashers of bacon) increases the chance of developing bowel cancer by nearly 20%.

I love a good quality sausage, I am a bit of a sausage snob if I'm honest  As bad as smoking??? Sorry I'll take my chances on this one.

WHO make me think about taking up smoking No
I mean if it the same a bacon and sausages it must be on no significant threat..

this is the problem with too many vegans in the WHO they are trying to push their agenda and end up just looking like fools OR completely invalidate all previous campiagns cause now smoking (that is Obviously worse) is now same as bacon  Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Scientists have said this for years about processed foods.
It's the same mantra that we should all adopt: a little bit of what you fancy but not too much.

I hate bacon anyway. It's salty and chewy and horrid

I do like a nice sausage though, and like Veya, I only buy good quality ones for my family

I'm with you on bacon Eds, I don't dislike it but there's so little to it. More of a sausage man myself ;-)

As to the story. Read some number crunching on this earlier.

Eatung the average intake of such meats a day increases you chance of certain cancers by 18% to 0.000something%...

Smoking regularly increases your chance of associated cancers by over 1000%.

This is by the official stats.

Not 'really' in the same league are they lol

This report was made up by the same kind of idiots who believe in global warming.Next they'll be telling us breathing causes cancer & that we should all stop breathing immediately.

Usual dumb stupid rubbish.

Agreed Les, just more scaremongering.  Soon we won't be able to eat anything, as Eddie says, moderation is what is needed.  

I will still be having pigs in blankets with my turkey Christmas Day x

Love a pig in blanket

Sausages are the only "meat" I still eat occasionally - and they're not even proper meat lol

I prefer sausages to bacon... but only if BOTH is not an option 

And I think there have been studies than any cooked food will slightly increase your risk on cancer...

18% on such a small fraction of a percent is more or less nothing.

Fortunately I don't think many will take this seriously. Thing is scientists simply do research, then its media and over zealous organizastions that distort the research with things like this.

There is a good enviromental reason to stop eating certain meats though. But I can't, I'm a slave to its tasty goodness lol

Haha! Me too Les, I could never be a vegetarian. I am fussy about it though and pretty much all our meat comes from our local butcher

Almost no meat here. Sometimes in a take away but not too often and only because I am scrounging what a friend has bought. Really lost the taste for meat I like veggies and onion gravies a heck of a lot more. My friend is going off meat as well, they bought a rather strange looking lamb burger from their butchers a month back, it looked more like white jelly meat to me. They could not eat it and just threw it in the bin, it looked so awful that we did not want the local foxes eating either.

I do eat vegetarian meals sometimes CaptainJane but I wouldn't want to do it full time or even for a few days.  Mmmm sausages, plus my little dog would be devastated!!!
