Lunch meat, hot dogs and processed meat of all kinds are common go-to school lunches, party foods or just something quick and easy that your kid will eat.

When we know better, we do better. 

I thought I would make this not-very-well-advertised information available to you, so you are aware of the effects of what we feed ourselves and our kids.

“What types of cancers are linked or associated with eating processed meat?
The IARC Working Group concluded that eating processed meat causes colorectal cancer.” – World Health Organization

…every 50 gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by about 18%.” – World Health Organization

“How many cancer cases every year can be attributed to consumption of processed meat and red meat?   According to the most recent estimates by the Global Burden of Disease Project, an independent academic research organization, about 34 000 cancer deaths per year worldwide…” – World Health Organization
