Hello, my friends!

Most of you have undoubtedly heard of the recent study by the World Health Organization (WHO) that strongly links meat to cancer. According to WHO, processed meat can lead to several types of cancer, including stomach and colon cancers. WHO also claimed that, in addition to processed meat, it was “probable” that red meat also increases the risk of cancer.

My reaction to this is two-fold. First, the claim that processed meat leads to cancer is not shocking in the least. In the study, WHO defined processed as smoked, cured, or salting. I fully agree that PROCESSED meats can and do lead to cancer. This is something that the holistic community has been claiming for decades now, much to the dismay of conventional food manufacturers and scientists.

However, their claims regarding red meat seem questionable and NOT thoroughly investigated for the following reasons:

Lastly, consider that the study overlooked the fact that the red meat that they studied was ALSO PROCESSED by virtue of studying meat that is not natural! It has been processed with hormones, antibiotics, and other cancer-causing filler that passes as food for these animals.

A little common sense will go a long way here, my friends. Eat what is natural; do so in moderation, and you will be fine! Stay away from processed foods that your body was never designed to eat! Nutrition need not be complicated. We are the ones who make it complicated by taking what is natural and then doing our “man made” tricks with it.

Here is the article if you are interested. Have a great day, my friends, and always remember . . .

Life is Good!
