meat damage

Oughta hit the news, might not:

Harvard School of Public Health have found that eating processed meat, such as bacon, sausage or processed deli meats, was associated with a 42% higher risk of heart disease and a 19% higher risk of type 2 diabetes.

In contrast, the researchers did not find any higher risk of heart disease or diabetes among individuals eating unprocessed red meat, such as from beef, pork, or lamb.

Unprocessed red and processed meats eaten in the United States contain similar average amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol, but processed meats contained, on average, 4 times more sodium and 50% more nitrate preservatives.
