|They defined processed meat as any meat preserved by smoking, curing or salting, or with the addition of chemical preservatives. Meats in this category included bacon, salami, sausages, hot dogs or processed deli or luncheon meats.
Unprocessed red meat included beef, lamb or pork but not poultry.
They found that on average, each 1.8 oz (50 grams) daily serving of processed meat a day — one to two slices of deli meats or one hot dog — was associated with a 42 percent higher risk of heart disease and a 19 percent higher risk of developing diabetes.
After reading this, it makes me wonder about grass fed nitrate free meats?
So what do you think??
I think that lumping together traditionally and chemically processed meat is not wise. There is a huge huge difference between processed deli meat which is full of binders and stuff and sometimes even cooked in plastic, and smoked, salted or naturally cured meat.
deli meats, no, though I do very very rarely eat them. traditionally processed meats, I think are healthy.
