WHO Carcinogens: Asbestos, Arsenic, Cigarettes, Alcohol,... & Bacon!?

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

The World Health Organization has now officially declared bacon to be just as dangerous to human health as tobacco cigarette smoking. WHO has made the decision to declare all processed meats “carcinogenic to humans,” and that’s not a good thing.

The World Health Organization officially classified processed meats as carcinogenic in October 2015. The decision managed to be made by something called the International Agency of Research into Cancer (IARC), based on a review done on 800 studies globally.

They claimed that the report found “sufficient evidence in humans that the consumption of processed meat causes colorectal cancer.” According to the IARC Report:

“Meat consists of multiple components, such as haem iron. Meat can also contain chemicals that form during meat processing or cooking.

For instance, carcinogenic chemicals that form during meat processing include N-nitroso compounds and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

Cooking of red meat or processed meat also produces heterocyclic aromatic amines as well as other chemicals including polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which are also found in other foods and in air pollution.

Some of these chemicals are known or suspected carcinogens, but despite this knowledge, it is not yet fully understood how cancer risk is increased by red meat or processed meat.”

That means it isn’t just bacon, but any processed meat that could be potentially cancer-causing. According to Reporting The Truth, WHO made the decision to bacon and other processed meats in with the ranks of other notoriously carcinogenic substances such as asbestos, arsenic, cigarettes, and alcohol. As a matter of fact, this decision and subsequent story is all based around a fallacy: an appeal to authority, the authority of the WHO.

Often, the WHO, CDC (Centers for Disease Control), and other government organizations have the ability to cause a media outcry based on nothing more what they say. The WHO has no genuine intention of keeping people healthy, being some altruistic force to make sure people don’t get bowel cancer. It would be naive to think that’s why they exist.

At the root of this story, the WHO and health organizations are justifying their existence by issuing warnings about things like this.

The WHO has a surface level, where they disclose to the public what they are researching and try to justify their existence with little warnings like this, and then they have a deeper depth of what they do and who they endorse, what research and products they promote, and all the rest.

Also, it’s not a good thing when government organizations start “officially” recognizing things. When the government starts “officially” recognizing the danger of tobacco, they start trying to make laws that do nothing but line the pockets of politicians with new taxes, and create annoying little additional hassles for people who will not give up smoking cigarettes either way. –Reporting The Truth

The truth is, almost everyone knows bacon is not a “health food.”  It isn’t a vegetable and it’s loaded with fat.  It’s not the best food to eat and because of that, most people have the common sense to not eat a pound of it at a time.

Family member died of cancer...they ate a lot of bacon...common breakfast for decades:

1. Fried bacon

2. Potatoes fried in the grease. 

3. Eggs fried in butter after the potatos.

4. Everything back in the pan to reheat.

5. Eat food, then wipe bottom of pan with fresh bread...no waste.

6. Wash it down with milk or coal black coffee. 

Mowing grass 10 days before death with stage 3 cancer....at the age of 101.

PS...found out later, house they lived in for ~80 years had "dangerous radon levels"...lol!

What kept them alive was an honest life and hard work.

Bacon is laden with bad fatty acids and being burnt is also sign of glycation products which heavily pollute the body. Two reasons why it's not healthy. 

Fat is not bad in general, when it consists in right amounts of omega 6 / omega 3. Cooked and burnt animal fat is not good.

~"The World Health Organization officially classified processed meats as carcinogenic..."~

Bologna! Er..., baloney!

Bacon is not the cause of the diabetes epidemic. Neither is butter, a medium rare New York steak cooked to perfection over an open oakwood flame grill, Hollandaise sauce, fried eggs or pork rinds, for that matter.

The #1 cause of the diabetes epidemic are carbohydrates and a lack of exercise. And diabetes, (and complications from it), is the #1 killer in the developed world.

Screw you, WHO.

Only if the pigs have been fed bad fatty acids. (Often they, as well as cows, chickens have been)

The last 40 years health advice about saturated fat and cholesterol is bullshit. What you need to be careful of are polyunsaturated oils consumed in conjunction with sugar (carbs).

Polyunsaturated means multiple carbon -> carbon double bonds. These are fragile and easily broken in an oxidative environment. Sugar creates that environment in your cells.

Donuts for example should have chem hazard signs attached.


Prefer fats over carbs. This reduces blood sugar and subsequently oxidation enormously.

In terms of fats: prefer saturated over mono, over poly and prefer omega 3 over omega 6. Doing this should reduce levels of inflammation (poisoning) caused by fat oxidation.

In terms of carbs: prefer veg over root veg, over grains, over table sugar over glucose/fructose. Doing this limits insulin response and insulin resistance, minimises blood sugar and supplies anti-oxidants along with whatever carbs you're consuming.

It's difficult to cook bacon without charring some of it. Any charred food, bacon, french fries, etc., subtracts from your life expectancy.

Also, consider what "they" feed to the pigs, and also the farmed fish! Because of the disgusting stuff fed these days to pigs and fish, I don't eat them.

For other foods, I use the pressure cooker a lot. Lot's of heat but not too much.

Also need fiber from raw escarole, carrots, celery, etc.

IARC is a panel of leftists.

It's ideology not science they are pushing. I'd bet that if you look at the "science" papers they included they'll be associational garbage at best.

See, cancer is a metabolic disease, it was shown years back that it's caused by damage to cell mitochondrial DNA. This is the bit of the cell which produces energy.

It's certainly possible that this is caused by damaged/ing compounds in processed meat, but you'd have to explain how, and we already have direct evidence that the glucose metabolism (any carb) creates oxidising compounds which are extremely damaging (hydrogen peroxide FFS).

So, it's more likely that the cancer  problem is related to people consuming lots of sugar (bread, pasta, rice, potatos) without anti-oxidants to clear up the rocket fuel that cells subsequently produce internally.

Hell. It's likely to be the same groups of people who consume processed meat and lots of oxidising carbs.

I agree some cars after an oil change fall to pieces when the sludge in the crankcase no longer holds things together, never.. never change the oil in a really old car that is still running!   Just add really cheap gook that is supposed to stop smoking exhaust instead or sawdust.

Sounds like my great grandma, lived till 99, ate bacon, salted everything, smoked 1 a day, and didnt even really do much exercise. Good genes I guess.

My grandfather is 6 months from being a centenarian. He just cut grease and red meat out of his diet when he was 35 because a doctor friend called to say his blood serum was cloudy.

I guess it works both ways?

Regardless, the REAL carcinogen/poison is sugar. Wonder why they dont have DV %'s of sugar? Could it be that even 30g of sugar would be probably 1000% of what humans really should consume daily?

Someone made a joke as to why Native Americans have diabetes: drinking a coke is akin to them eating 1000 blueberries at once, as their ancestors rarely came across any forms of sugar, especially processed sugar.

The Chinese are great consumers of pork.   I don't think they pay too much attention to the WHO.

We have been told for decades to avoid animal fats, use vegetable oils, and eat complex carbs.   More recently it has been shown that all fats are good and that carbohydrates are what are bad for you.   A lot of Doctors and the "establishment" still spout the old research and tell us to cut out fats and eat carbs.   Ignore them!   My mother died just short of 97 and always believed that if you could not see your teethmarks in the butter on your bread it was not spread thickly enough.   Butter, eggs, cream, whole fat milk, and butterfat rich cheeses are good for you.   Eat your veggies, fats and lots of protein and minimize the carbs.

The "experts" have given so much bad advice and incorrect information over the last several decades that no sensible person should be paying any attention to them.

ALL fats are good? Nope, not buying that one. Margarine is vegetable oil that has had hydrogen bubbled through it to artificially solidify it. It DEFINITELY causes me angina. Even as a young boy in first grade. I completely cut out margarine from my diet - no angina. Recently, I gave it a try again, thinking that maybe the problem was trans-fats, which now-a-days they've figured out are bad and advertise trans-fat free versions. Nope, still causes sharp chest pains even when trans-fat free. There is something seriously wrong with margarine, stay away from that vile abomination.

anything even browned is now considered a risk

ie crisp hot chips or the packet crisps

well browned bread or cakes. well done meat of any kind

the fact that chicken and pork need to be well cooked to ensure safety seems to not matter to them

so look forward to fried foods by law in EU/uk soon to be rather soggy and anaemic looking

and  they DO plan to expand this version of foodstazi control globally.

Protein and animal fat are good for you. 

Depends on your goal. Ive studied nutrition passionately and experimented with all different types of eating and training.

I found the optimum diet, for me personally, as far as how I look and feel the best are things like fish eggs rice and green veg juice. I eat a over a dozen sometimes two dozen eggs every day. Ive bought the palette at costcos before. If there was one perfect food I think it would be eggs.

The worse thing for health is to be sedentary. Many health problems are because people just dont move enough. Making a conscious effort to move all the time is required. Walk, run, park your car far, buy a bike and ride it to work, take the stairs anything you can do to move your body is the single most beneficial thing most people could do for their health.

"Bacon is haram, forbidden, for stupid heathens and infidels"

Calling us 'stupid heathens' only shows how ignorant you are to what Critical thought is or the fact that you don't use it by believing that you are governed by a supernatural overlord. You obviously don't know the difference between subjective and objective thinking.  I've read the Koran from cover to cover and find it even more insulting to my intelligence than the bible.  Learn what critical reasoning is.
