Michael Greger, MD recently reported on a study where researchers discovered that the level of the potent carcinogens nitrosamines are so high in bacon that they found that very substance in its cooking vapors. As a result, the researchers recommend cooking bacon outside when possible and not exercising near cooking bacon as the increase in your lung volumes during physical exertion could increase your exposure.
To put this into perspective, nitrosamines are considered to be the most carcinogenic agents in cigarette smoke. Just 4 hot dogs contain a level of nitrosamines higher than what is found in an entire pack of cigarettes. Unfortunately, they are not just prevalent in bacon and hot dogs, but in all processed meats including smoked and canned meat.
So protect your loved ones from these insidious compounds and avoid animal products altogether. Eat a variety of whole grains, legumes, vegetables, and fruits and see how good a plant-based lifestyle can feel.
