'Burger-Up' for Cancer

The National Cancer Institute researchers have concluded, "Red and processed meats have been associated with an elevated risk with colorectal and lung cancer".

High red meat intake was associated with increased risk of esophageal and liver Cancer. Highly processed meats were associated with bladder Cancer myeloma, and pancreatic cancer in men. Highly processed meats: hot dogs, bologna, sausage, bacon, pork and poultry sausage, smoked salmon, and Jerky.
All this information ironically came from a page in the Indy Star with 3/4's of the page a Kroger sale ad for Rack of Lamb, Standing Rib Roast, and a Semi-Boneless ham.
Now you know that high meat consumption is linked to elevated cancer risk.
