Oh dear the health nazis are at it again, not happy with criminalising smokers and raising the price of pre mixed drinks 70%, they are onto a new atrocity.
Killer sandwich: ham linked to cancer
They might seem a harmless lunchtime filler but ham, salami and devon are on the World Cancer Research Fund’s hit list.
Ok here’s the word for you concerned scum. Piss off and leave me alone, I don’t respect you and strongly believe you are out of control busybodies who are flat out providing cover for the government to raise taxes on “sins”. I am currently grumpy enough, deprive me on my morning bacon and it may just be enough to tip me over the edge…
Oh and just how huge is this organisation that have generated worldwide headlines with a non-story?
The charity’s Lisa Cooney says it is recommending parents do not give their children more than 70 grams of processed meat a week.
That is the equivalent of two ham sandwiches, or three thin rashers of bacon.
“There’s convincing scientific evidence linking the consumption of processed meats like ham, salami and bacon to an increase in bowel cancer risk,” Ms Cooney said.
“And we also know that the habits we develop during childhood can follow us through to adulthood. So parents have a really wonderful opportunity to help promote really healthy habits in their children.”
First cab off the rank “Think of the chiiiillldren!!!”, piss off and choke on a dick you harridan, you either have a SOLID mass of evidence or you have speculation and rubbery figures.
More under the fold
Meating the addiction
Nutritionist Dr Rosemary Stanton says processed meats can become addictive.
“If you are going to start looking at what you put on sandwiches, most people put about 35 grams or so on a sandwich,” she said.
“So two ham sandwiches a week, if you didn’t have any other processed meat, wouldn’t be such a big problem.
“But if your kids or anyone else gets addicted to ham sandwiches every day they’re going to go way over that by the end of the week.”
Next cab off the rank, denormalise the subject. Start calling a preference an “addiction”, then your only a step away from justifying medical “help” for the “addicted”. Im sure that Gobbels would be proud ..
Dr Stanton says there does appear to be a link between bowel cancer and increased consumption of processed meat.
“The link is actually convincing and it comes from lots of studies on lots of people,” she said.
“The link is also there for fresh meat.
“These are big important studies. This is not somebody looking at 200 people, these are millions of people when you add up all of the studies and they’re all showing the same thing.”
And why should I trust your findings? Again figures aren’t science, come back when you HAVE found the causative factor and speak then.
And what a surprise, whilst not a vegetarian Mrs Stanton believes in cutting meat consumption to save the world from glowbull worming as well. Funny how so many “good” causes all dovetail into one another eh?
Until then piss off and leave me in peace, if you continue to harass me I shall be forced to track you down and administer a chocolate covered bacon suppository upon you.
