I received an email from a reader a while back asking me to address a headline that has exploded into the media overnight: that processed and red meats have been definitively linked to cancer. Trusted news sites such as BBC and The Guardian have flooded media channels with news that the World Health Organization (WHO) has made evidence-based claims that link smoked, processed and red meats to the similar effects of carcinogenic chemicals and even smoking. Popular American news channels have exploded over television, radio, and social media- stirring up crazed consumers to demand product recalls and question their lifetime history of dietary choices.
Everyone needs to calm down.
