There's nothing tastier than Hillshire Beef Sausage. I roast or grill it once or twice a month. They have to pry it from my cold dead fingers.

Personally I try to eat healthy. Morning yogurt and a powdered protein shake. Lunch a salad with some chicken. Dinner some chicken or meat with broccoli and other vegetables. Before bed another protein shake. 1 hour of working out a day 40 minutes cardio plus 20 minutes weights. Plus I walk the dogs around 4 miles per day. Blood work is perfect. Have to collect that pension for 40 years lol!!!!

World Health Organization issues report that processed meat, PORK, BACON, HAM will kill you. Can we have the names of the people writing the report and from which country they reside?

Riskier to drive in a small car. Without context this is nothing. 34k deaths a year globally? Nothing. 20% of nothing is nothing.

Let them eat bacon and hot dogs!

If more people die young the less social security and Medicare payments we will have to make in the future

Processed meats are nasty. They are just a bunch of scraps mixed with chemicals. Eww.

Don't eat anything. Oh wait you can't do that either because you're going to starve. I guess just eat rice cakes and tofu..what an interesting diet.

I'm against medication and avoid it when I can but you're right. I even read not too long ago that using your phone could give you cancer due to the radiation.
It's so ridiculous. I have thanatophobia and hypochondria so I worry about my health enough without thinking about whether I should give up meats. I just trust my own mind nowadays on whether I should listen to my fear or not.

Well we just had the headline about human DNA in hot dogs, so maybe people with cancer are falling into vats at the meat processing plant.

That's actually a good point. Maybe a bit harsh "don't give a crap" but just leading a different life style.

We just lost a co-worker about 6 months ago to a very aggressive cancer. The most god fearing woman I've ever known. Traveled to Nepal from Cleveland 3 times to help the poor there in God's name.
She was also a vegan for over 30 years.

Nothing can save you. Enjoy your life.

One of the potential issues with a study like this is life expectancy's impact on your likelihood to get cancer. How was this accounted for? In nations where they eat little processed foods and red meat a huge portion of those populations and the worlds population as a whole dont because they cannot afford the products. They are also more likely to die young and as a result not get cancer they would have otherwise gotten.

Of course I do think it is wise to limit red meat and heavily processed foods but it is similarly important to avoid driving in a small car. You are over 20% more likely to die in a midsize car than a mid size SUV in the US and the number of annual deaths per capita is FAR higher for vehicle deaths. 34k deaths a year caused by these foods globally is a statistical blip. 32k people a year died in car crashes in the US last year. So the impact of changing the vehicle is far more impact than changing what you eat.

Moral of the story, drive a big suv apparently.
