Day 8-Processed meat


Carcinogen – a substance capable of causing cancer in living tissue

In October 2015, World Health organization announced that processed red meat produced carcinogen that produce different types of cancer. The link between cancer and eating red meat has been studied by the World Cancer Research Fund through 7,000 clinical studies that processed meat is too dangerous for human consumption. The sodium nitrite to manufacture processed meat results to the formation of nitrosamines that increase the risk of cancer. In eating 50 grams of eating processed meat, there is also more than 50% risk of getting pancreas cancer and 21% risk for colorectal cancer (bowel cancer) in the studied conducted by University of Hawaii in 2005 .

Sodium nitrite is the primary ingredients of processed meat products (which doesn’t include fish and chicken) and combined with monosodium glutamate (MSG) which is another dangerous additive can be found in:

• Beef jerky
• Bacon
• Sausage
• Hot dogs
• Sandwich meat
• Frozen pizza with meat
• Canned soups with meat
• Frozen meals with meat
• Ravioli and meat pasta foods
• Kid’s meals containing red meat
• packaged ham, pepperoni, salami
• Nearly all red meats sold at public schools, restaurants, hospitals, hotels and theme parks

Consumer knows the effect of processed meat but then you cannot stop them because it is readily available. Even the government food authority is supporting this kind of processed food because it is about business, profit, capitalism! At the end, it is always the consumer who suffers that unless they get chronic disease like cancer, that’s the time they will stop eating red meat.

Self-discipline is always the key to a healthy living. By choosing plant-based diet, you are helping yourself to boost your immune system and not giving too much stress on your body by forcing it to digest animal meat.

If red meat from cow, pig and lamb has carcinogen, eating chicken has a lot of hormones. Yet average people are still choosing food out of cruelty. Always remember, our body is sacred and our stomach is not a graveyard to throw those meats from dead animals.

The cure for cancer is always right at your own choice of filling your kitchen with herbs, fruits and vegetables which is beyond doctor’s prescription.
