Warning!!! After you read this you’ll probably become a vegetarian. I’m seriously thinking about it.

According to World Health Organization’s cancer agency, ham, sausage and other processed meats can lead to stomach, colon and other cancers –and red meat can probably cause cancer too.

The North American Meat Institute argues that “cancer is a complex disease not caused by single foods” and stressed the importance of environmental and lifestyle factors.

Just so we are clear processed meats are defined as anything transformed to improve its flavor or preserve it – including curing, smoking and salting.

So does this mean no smoked turkeys and hams on Christmas Day? Tastless!
