Processed meat is a carcinogen.

Did you know that?

The announcement was issued in 2015 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which is a World Health Organization (WHO) group. Even though it’s old news, I had never heard this message. I first discovered it after watching What the Health on Netflix a couple of weeks ago.

Q: What’s a carcinogen?

A: A carcinogen is a substance capable of changing the DNA of your cells, thereby causing cancer.

It’s important to note that What the Health gets some of its facts wrong, but here is the most important fact that the documentary gets right:

Processed meats like bacon, hot dogs, and deli meat have been classified as a Group 1 carcinogen.

Other Group 1 carcinogens include cigarettes and asbestos. However, it’s important to know that the Class 1 designation is not a reflection on how likely you are to…

  1. Hello Anna
    Thank you for posting. I love raspberries, it is indeed a very healthy fruit. I love them mixed with green apples when I bake Apple Crumble – my favorite. You already make me crave for it. I now have to prepare to do some and I have to buy my favorite ice-cream. I hope you are feeling fine Anna. I think of you and wonder how you are doing. I am happy you are doing well and busy doing some blogging – Well done! Wish you a wonderful autumn! Did you get some pumpkins? Well just post us some pics! Love you Anna. Take care of yourself and let us know what’s going on! Bless you my little heart! Juli

  2. Processed meats are loaded with salt. It is a human (probably all or most animals) to crave salt.
    Salt is its own addiction. It is no wonder people love processed meats.
    ps: that means what is good about them?
    Oh, here is one thing good about them: salting the secondary parts of animals to shove into a tube was a way to use more of the parts of a slaughtered animal, preserve food and avoid starvation. With the bounty of food available in first world (and more) countries, one can eat fresh food, which is so much better for health.

  3. Thanks for sharing this, I agree with you and knowledge is power, so the more we learn about our bodies, spirit, and heart the more we can take our power back and take control over our own life. I have learned the past year or so that I should go back to basics, meaning natural organic things it wasn’t until this year that and undergoing health issues with the obstacles of not being able to lose weight that the doctor put me on plant-based eating. I am feeling better as my body adjusts to eating this way. I found that I do not miss the meat, dairy and all the yucky things I use to eat. The more you learn about what it does to you and your body the easier it is to let it go.
