W H O: processed meats cause cancer?

Post by Karlsweldt »

Disturbing news from the W H O (World Health Org.).. they say that eating processed meats increase the chances of people developing cancer.. by up to 18% higher. Yet non-processed meats such as steaks and pork or lamb are "probably carcinogenic."
The W H O classes processed meats as bacon, deli meats, hot dogs and sausage. Having been cured or smoked, and preservatives added.
They now class processed meats in the same category as smoking and asbestos.

Surely there will be a world-wide retort about this notice!

It's the usual problem: yes they can prove it does. No, they cannot prove it will happen to YOU
