Good Morning America is about to "break" a story on the processed/cured meat connection to cancer. This is based on some research by the World Cancer Research Fund, and their recommendation to limit the amount of processed meat your kids eat. There's an article from the BBC here. Not new news for many of us, but it bears repeating and remembering, especially now that back-to-school is upon us . . . .
Update: yet no mention of nitrites/ates and their connection to cancer, which is well established. This "report" just focused on the sodium and sat. fat content. Craziness.
