Will my bacon kill you?

Your spit contains far more nitrites than anything you could ever eat. Read the very interesting article [URL="http://chriskresser.com/the-nitrate-and-nitrite-myth-another-reason-not-to-fear-bacon/"]The Nitrate and Nitrite Myth: Another Reason Not To Fear Bacon.

Read this excellent article if you wonder if we need to stop eating red meat and/or processed meat - http://www.zoeharcombe.com/2015/10/world-health-organisation-meat-cancer

Here is my advice - get back to your butcher, know him/her by name, know where your meat comes from, know how s/he prepares bacon & hand-made sausages and enjoy the health benefits of real food while supporting the grafters who provide it.

PS. I make bacon...

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

Unfortunately I was listening to this on the radio yesterday and the quality of the processed meat doesn't matter. Just the fact that it's processed matters.

So yes your bacon will probably kill us.

So despite what you may hear, it isn’t about the quality of the meat, or whether it’s from the local butcher or your supermarket. The evidence so far suggests that it’s probably the processing of the meat, or chemicals naturally present within it, that increases cancer risk.

Ahh ok ..
I never signed up there before. But have browsed, and again just now.

I would like a sandwich taste test. Between the coop 3.50 bio (lard) bacon .. and this 15.00 bacon


Thought Jims in Gland was closed/closing soon?

Edit .. Is it just chance that bacon falls into the page called "......php?cat=666" on the website ?

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

Life is for living, and not for trying to survive until the age 124.

So WHO, thanks for your advice but

EDIT: p.s. I trust the WHO over some link on the internet. But I'd still eat your bacon.

Nono, Jims is not closing down - Jim and Margaret are moving towards retirement and are looking for someone to take over the shop in Gland while they continue with the one in St Genis.

We have a meat counter inside Jim's - drop in on Saturday for a taste:-)

Us:-))

Sharp:-))

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

from Examine.com Scientists just found out that red meat causes cancer...or did they?

In my mind moderation and balance is key depending on your own personal health profile. I love read meats but do now alter my cooking methods and have avoided most processed meats, except prosciutto, I admit to the occasional temptation of a sausage when out at a local food fair/market.

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

You have no idea how many jews I have met over the years that said bacon was not pork (I am jewish so I don't mean this in a bad sense, it's just always a funny one to hear)

I think bacon vs pork is sometimes a touchy subject, something in it sure does make people really love the stuff. I just never got the reason why there are pigs if not to eat, what are they here for?

So salami, hot dogs etc (ie mostly pork) is all bad, is pork itself bad then? is it what we're doing to the meat vs the meat itself? They had meat 50 years ago when cancer numbers where lower, so now it's meat causing cancer? Not maybe microwaves or mobiles or chemicals in the food?

It's one of those touchy subjects but something IS causing the increase, but is it really bacon or salami?
