Heart Disease, Diabetes Risk Linked To Processed Meat

Diabetes • • HeartMay 21, 10

You might want to think twice before grilling up those breakfast sausages as a new study has linked processed meat consumption to heart disease and diabetes.

Some of our favorite foods may not be doing us any good, as according to researchers, eating processed meat can up our risk of heart disease by 42 percent, and our risk of diabetes by 19 percent.

Processed meats include; bacon, hotdogs, lunch meat to name a few, all of which are considered popular food items when it comes to the diet of Americans.

The researchers analyzed other studies to reach this study finding, and say that eating unprocessed meat did not seem to have the same health risks.

They say that it might be the salt and other chemicals that go into processed meats that maybe what is causing these dangerous health risks.

“To lower risk of heart attacks and diabetes, people should consider which types of meats they are eating,” said Renata Micha of the Harvard School of Public

The study is published in the journal Circulation.
