Although I've been snacking on my Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Granola from Costco all day, I will continue to enjoy sausage, bacon, pepperoni, ham and hard salami whenever the mood strikes me.

Due to the high calorie content, I'm guessing I've ingested about 1,400 calories from this stuff today. I'm going to get fat from flax, pumpkin seeds and granola.

My ex work husband used to complain that bags of nut mixes, etc. from Costco would cause emergency bathroom breaks. He would eat about a third of a bag at each sitting. Each bag had about 30 servings.

Butter mixed 50/50 with olive oil? I'm guessing that is for bread or do you use it in other applications?

How did you make the intellectual leap from the report stating that "unprocessed red meat may also be carcinogenic" to your declaration that "unprocessed red meat is probably carcinogenic"? Other than vegan logic.

And btw, most knowledgeable people in the US realize that the WHO is a just a tool of Euro leftists to advance their political agendas.

Lol, that's funny, the OP is far from being a leftist.

It's a no brainer that red meat & processed meat is unhealthy. Anyone with a brain knows that.

I never said the Op was a leftist.
Thank you for your brilliant and persuasive dietary insights.

The WHO's cancer research unit now classifies processed meat as "carcinogenic to humans" based on evidence from hundreds of studies, and linked it specifically to colon, or colorectal, cancer.

The report outlined that simply eating 50 grams of processed meat each day -- the equivalent of two slices of ham -- can increase the risk of such cancer by 18%. However, the authors say the risks are relatively small to begin with.
