Yes, processed foods are bad for our health in many ways.  That's why I don't eat any.  And the additives they put in smoked meat definitely makes it more dangerous. 
      My statement refers to the time before smoked meats were mass produced with additives.  Do a little more research.  The link between smoked meat and stomach cancer is a reality. 
     I personally don't care what anyone eats.  If someone wants to eat smoked meat six times a day or eat at McDonald's every day of their life I'm fine with it.  And eating something not completely healthy once in a while will probably do you no harm.  But if I know of a risk that you don't and I don't tell you about it then I am negligent.


Fair enough, I appreciate it. Thing is, I know all these researchers have hidden agendas and all that. You get rid of smoked meats, and people become far less self-sufficient because they're scared to preserve their own food. So I'm reluctant to believe anything any scientist or researcher says about food - especially traditional food.

Im a little skeptical of the anti meat sentiment these days. Many people have adopted the carnivore diet and said its healed all sorts of autoimmune conditions. For myself I had to go on a very strict diet of very low grain and no dairy to control my autoimmune issues. After my experience I could see how there may be something to it.

But yeah the smoked meats... I could see that increasing the risk just because we know smoke increases risks of cancer across the board. The rate of cancer in firefighters is really high so there must be something to it.

    Two things I've said many times before... everything in moderation.  And you can tell what a creature is supposed to eat by looking at his teeth.  We are Onmivores.  We are meant to eat meat and plants.  Leaning too heavily to one side or the other compromises health.  A good balance is what's needed.  That's my opinion anyway. And I hope smoked meats are around forever.  There is something very primal and wonderful about smoke on meat.  It's deep in our DNA.
