I’ve written on numerous occasions about the impact that bacon and other processed meats have on your health. The reality is that meat, fish or poultry in any form can cause serious health problems. For the past 100 years there has been strong evidence that consumption of both unprocessed red meat products and processed meat products can lead to increased risk for many diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Processed foods have been altered from their natural state and are laden with saturated fats, sodium and sugar and provide little to no
nutritional value. As I wrote earlier this month, processed foods are highly addictive and make you want more.
According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, just one 50-gram serving of processed meat (about the amount in one hot dog) consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer, on average, by 21 percent. Americans eat 20 billion hot dogs a year, as well as significant amounts of bacon, cold cuts, and other processed meats.
I grew up on a dairy farm so I understand that the thought of living your life without a hamburger, hot dog, prime rib, BBQ
chicken or the fillet of salmon may be unimaginable and down right horrifying to you.
But I also know the power of self-hypnosis to create a large amount of no desire for the foods that make you sick and fat. Learn hypnosis and discover your delightful desire for the whole plant-based foods that make you healthy and slender.
Do I Have to Stop Eating Meat?
NBC News, Maggie Fox: “The report doesn’t say that just one bite of meat causes cancer. What it does say is that there are clear mechanisms for both processed and red meat to cause cancer, and that studies have shown across populations that the more meat people eat, the higher their risk of cancer.
Many reports over the years have shown that people who eat more red meat and more processed meat have a higher risk of several types of cancer, especially colon cancer and breast cancer. People who eat more meat often have other unhealthy habits. They usually eat fewer fruits and vegetables and they often exercise less, also. Exercise and plant foods can lower the risk of cancer.”
The Big Bucks of Bacon: American Meat Industry By the Numbers
NBC News, by Martha C. White and Mike Brunker, October 26, 2015: A new report linking red meat with an increased cancer risk raised the hackles of the U.S. meat and poultry industry, an economic powerhouse that makes up the largest segment of U.S. agriculture, according to an industry trade group.
