Bacon and Hot Dogs are now no nos!! And you can add in burgers too. It’s all too much, how can New Yorkers be expected to give up on the foods they love so much and indeed why should they?
Well no one is going to twist your arm up your back, but the WHO (World Health Organization) who are a pretty sober set of health dudes have looked at a whole bunch of studies and come to the sobering conclusion that there is definite link between cured meats and processed meats like frankfurters and sausages and cancer, no ifs and buts.
And they’re saying there’s also a link between cancer and red meat but it’s not as strong and there are good reasons to keep on eating red meat because it has protein and nutrients, so cut your burgers or steak down to two-three serves a week and you’re within a margin of relative safety.
It will be really, really interesting to see how New Yorkers respond, because there will be no compulsion to stop eating bacon and sausages, just the now widespread knowledge that these foods have joined, sugar, baked goods and white rice as foods that aren’t good for your health.
The online discussion about this bombshell have been interesting. The consensus seems to be not to stop completely but to cut down considerably. Turn bacon and other processed meats like frankfurters and sausages into a special treat that you give yourself rarely.
New Yorkers are pretty food forward when it comes to the latest on how to eat in a healthy way, just look at all those juice bars and farm to table restaurants. So to preserve out collective sanity lets aim for all the healthy stuff with a side serve of whichever food sin takes your fancy when you feel you must. Turn bacon and other processed meats like frankfurters and sausages into a special treat that you give yourself rarely.
