A new study suggests there's a link between processed meat and pancreatic cancer.

Swedish researchers found that people who eat at least one serving of processed meat daily, like a sausage or bacon, increase the risk of getting pancreatic cancer by almost 20 percent.

Some scientists think this is because of the nitrates in processed meat.

THAT is one of the "prices" that the poor pay for BEING poor. You won't find them at the checkout stands with piles of Steaks in their carts, you will see the least expensive packages of hot dogs, that are usually made from "scrap" meat, and shot full of preservatives. It's usually the only meat that they can afford.

The meat you are showing in the above photo is NOT "processed meat". It appears to be fresh sausage or ground beef. Whatever "processing" they would have received would be only a matter of grinding the meat not adding preservatives and such as are found in "processed" meat. Now these "scientists"...do they just "think" it's nitrates or are they reasonably sure? I don't think this subject lends itself to such a short news item. Not enough details to make an accurate judgment of the supposition.
