    It's official: Ham, sausage and other processed meats can lead to colon, stomach and other cancers -- and red meat is probably cancer-causing, too.

    For now, it’s just processed meats. But you know they’re coming for that steak on your table and maybe even your Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas ham. Because fascists gotta do what fascists gotta do, and first they use “science” to get the ball rolling: Processed meats – such as bacon, sausages and ham – do cause cancer, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Its report said 50g of processed meat a day – less than two slices of bacon – increased the chance of developing colorectal cancer by 18%. Meanwhile, it said red meats were “probably carcinogenic” but there...

    The World Health Organization released a report yesterday that’s nothing but a bunch of soccer loving Euro-bull. Here’s the gist: Processed meats cause cancer and red meat probably does, too.

The chief alarmist there is Dr. Margaret Chan, who added, “Our planet is losing its capacity to sustain...

    I hate “eating x gives you y” stories. Nearly always, associations between particular foods and drinks and specific illnesses are weak, riddled with confounding variables and describe increases in marginal risks that shouldn’t really worry us. If eating pickled fish tongues, say, doubles your risk of developing cancer of the Lower Hobsonate Iltoid, that only sounds worrying until you realize that in the whole of human history there have only been three recorded cases of this ghastly (and wholly made-up) disease. So what do we make of the news that high consumption of processed meats such as bacon, sausages and...
