    2. Smoked and processed meats

    Whether your weakness is pastrami, sausage, hot dogs, bacon, or a smoked turkey sandwich, the word from the experts is: Watch out.
    Why it's bad

    Smoked and processed meats are nasty contributors to stroke risk in two ways: The preserving processes leave them packed with sodium, but even worse are the preservatives used to keep processed meats from going bad. Sodium nitrate and nitrite have been shown by researchers to directly damage blood vessels, causing arteries to harden and narrow. And of course damaged, overly narrow blood vessels are exactly what you don't want if you fear stroke.

    Many studies have linked processed meats to coronary artery disease (CAD); one meta-analysis in the journal Circulation calculated a 42-percent increase in coronary heart disease for those who eat one serving of processed meat a day. Stroke is not the only concern for salami fans; cancer journals have reported numerous studies in the past few years showing that consumption of cured and smoked meats is linked with increased risk of diabetes and higher incidences of numerous types of cancer, including leukemia.

    So my question on this to the experts.  Shall we go back to hunting our own ?  Does PETA endorse this message ? :)  I have 3 or 4 squirrels that love to pester my 2 girls when they are inside.  One of these days, I am going to break out the pellet gun and nail one of those cuddly fella's.  After skinning and brining, then smoking for about 3 hours at 225.... My little girls will get their comeuppance :)

  17. Just watch out for the under cooked meat. 

    I read that warning at a cancer treatment center almost 20 yrs ago. I dont mind the warnings.  That way i can make an informed decision. I will continue to eat raw meat and not over cook my bird and still drink orange juice and my water.

    Happy smoken.[​IMG]

    I hate it went the sky is falling.

    The writer of the article you posted is a Journalist and doesn't site any references to any of the facts she lists. Granted our sausage, hams and bolonga's might not be as health as a green salad, but it not the kiss o death that it was made out to be either.
     
  20. As long as you don't live on it. It's all about balance as Mrs. Ale always says.
