In 2015 the World Health Organization published it’s report….processed meat including hot dogs, ham, sausage, deli meats and bacon were classified as Group 1 carcinogens. Twenty two experts from 10 different countries reviewed more than 800 studies to reach their conclusion.
When the story of the report came out you couldn’t miss it. It was splashed large in every newspaper and all over the Web; “Eating bacon is proven to cause cancer”. Super markets reported bacon sales dropped overnight.
Meanwhile the meat industry was busily insisting that there is nothing to worry about, the report was overly dramatic and overreached.
Yet the evidence of linking bacon to cancer is stronger then ever.
Who has been doing some of this important research? The doctors with the ‘Physician’s Committee For Responsible Medicine”.
They have been picketing this winter in front of McDonald’s restaurants, during Mac’s free ‘Bacon Hour’ promotion. They have had enough of the BS. Their signs read “Colorectal Cancer: I’m risking it”, “Break-up with Bacon” and “Bacon causes Butt Cancer”. Who are these brave doctors? A crazy lefty group? Nope, these are the very respected doctors who belong to the PCRM based in Washington DC. The longtime president and surgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Neal Barnard, MD, said, “McDonald’s should be offering customers a free colorectal cancer screening with every free side of bacon”.
If you have come to believe that all doctors are living under a rock when it comes to diet change and plant nutrition, you’re going to want to google up these no-nonsense, dedicated plant-based doctors who are willing to stand outside in the frigid cold to connect their message to anyone who will listen. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a non-profit research and advocacy organization which promotes a vegan diet, preventive medicine, and alternatives to animal research.
To quote Dr Bernard: “As a Doctor, I want people to know that they already wield some of the most powerful tools to help take control over the risk of cancer: the fork and knife”.
Amen, Doctor B.
