Processed Meat is a Real Health Risk

Eating processed meat such as bacon, sausage, and hot dogs can raise your risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Eating unprocessed meats did not appear to raise the risk, suggesting that salt and chemical preservatives may be the real cause of these two health problems which have sometimes been associated with eating meat.

According to Reuters:

“Individual studies looking at relationships between eating meat and cardiovascular diseases and diabetes have had mixed results. But studies rarely look for differences in risk between processed and unprocessed red meats.”
