Sausages, bacon tied to early deaths?

LONDON: The bacon and sausage on your plate or those steaming hot pies are increasing your chances of premature death from cancer and heart disease. Processed meat is to blame for one in 30 early deaths, a large-scale study has now found.

The EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition) study involving 10 countries and 23 centres in Europe and almost half a million people has found that risk of premature death increased with the amount of processed meat eaten by a person. According to the study, even one sausage a day is bad for your health.

The researchers say that salting, curing and smoking of meat gives rise to carcinogens like nitrosamines, and these may be the cause of the increased cancer mortality.

Processed meat products are also high in cholesterol and saturated fats, which are linked with increased risk of heart and circulatory disease.

Professor Sabine Rohrmann from the University of Zurich, who led this analysis explained, "Risks of dying earlier from cancer and cardiovascular disease increased with the amount of processed meat eaten such as sausages, salami or ham. Overall, we estimate that 3% of premature deaths each year could be prevented if people ate less than 20g processed meat per day."

Oh well, we all have to die anyway. One of life’s guarantees, along with taxes, eh?

Congress must act to register sausage and bacon. Anyone buying or consuming it should be prosecuted. The clandestine sale of these items must be tracked and violators prosecuted with the full weight of the government.

This is why I only eat bacon and sausages late in the evening.

If loving bacon is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

My grandfather was a farmer. Worked his entire life on his farm. He ate bacon and eggs or sausage almost all the time.

He died 3 months short of his 93rd birthday.

I guess if he didn't eat bacon and sausage, he might still be alive today.

Just go with the bread, cheese, and wine diet., with the occasional chocolate antioxidant component.

Exactly. If you work hard it’s fine. If you’re a lazy fat ass, not so much.

I remember eggs being bad. I eat two a day every day from my own chickens.

One day with Bath-House Barry in office will elevate your blood pressure exceedingly more than having bacon with breakfast.

(and it smells better, too.)

According to the hog unions processed meats are killing their members herd by herd.

In other breaking news; Total abstention from food of any kind will usually lead to very premature death.
