Bacon Causes Cancer

Yep, you read that right, according to about half the headlines on this topic yesterday, if you eat bacon you will get colorectal cancer.

Here is one, for instance:

Bacon and Hot Dogs Cause Cancer, According to the World Health Organization

Cuts cause bleeding. Processed meats do not cause cancer in the same way. Gravity causes objects to fall to earth. Eating bacon does not make you sick. Lots of people have been eating bacon for lots of years and the vast majority of them do not get colorectal cancer and die.

On the other hand, about two thirds of the people in the US are getting fat, getting diabetes, getting high blood pressure and dying of heart attacks from eating starch and sugars. All of the health authorities are, in chorus, singing the same song on this front, “diet and exercise”. Eat less calories, exercise more, take your daily dose of medicine to manage the symptoms of your sugar poisoning.

At this late stage of the game it is really crazy for any government body to proclaim loudly that a food is dangerous, when they cannot say a word about the real clear-and-present danger in our food manufacturing system–sugar.

Bacon and processed meats do not ’cause’ cancer. Something that these people eat probably does, I would not be one bit surprised to find that the people who do get cancer also eat a lot of bread, or sugar, or both. Of course, nobody would think to ask a question like that.

I don’t fear processed meats at all, provided that they are natural and contain the fats I need. You shouldn’t either.
