What's your feelings towards "processed meat causes cancer"?


The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified processed meat as a carcinogen, something that causes cancer. And it has classified red meat as a probable carcinogen, something that probably causes cancer. (IARC is the cancer agency of the World Health Organization.)

Some Processed meats would include Ham, sausage, beef jerky and hot dogs.
Pretty much anything meat preserved or meat with added flavor.

They found that eating at least 50 grams a day would increase your chances of cancer by 18%.

Does this make you want to change your diet, or does it even faze you?

  • I've definitely cut down, but I haven't been able to quit altogether How great is it to avoid cancer by starving to death? Remember, dairy products also produce cancer.

  • I used to live in a city with a hotdog factory and at night you could smell the nastiness. Processed food isn't right. It's mass produced garbage. Diary is also pretty bad for you bc oc all the hormones pumped into it

  • Probably payed-for propaganda. If you take their studies seriously fucking everything causes cancer, and then the next day nothing causes cancer. Exercise and that's all that matters.

  • Look up a list of everything that gives you cancer. Basically living; living gives you cancer. Avoiding all the shit that causes cancer is not living, that's just surviving.

    • Fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low fat yogurt, poly and mono unsaturated oils in moderation, nuts and seeds in moderation, water, fish... oh and exercise!

    • @Inuyasha86 Are you seriously arguing against exercise. Yes, there's oxidative stress. That's why you eat fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts seeds and fish in moderation. You should be getting 60 minutes of exercise every day.

    • @CactusJuice I'm not arguing against exercise. I'm merely stating the facts.

  • Tbh I don't really plan on living past 50 , so I'm just gonna work out, nothing more nor less
