Q & A with Sally Fallon Morell of Weston A. Price Foundation: Evaluation of the carcinogenicity of red and processed meats ;
On the day of Halloween, I had the honor to talk to Sally Fallon Morell of the Weston A. Price Foundation in new research surrounding red and processed meats. You may have seen the headlines appearing in social media; Goodbye bacon or Red & meat products cause cancer . 26 Oct ap , the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), agency of the World Health Organization (WHO) cancer published a study evaluating the carcinogenicity these meats . These findings have been the focus of much debate among doctors, nutritionists and other health professionals, divided on the issue. I talked to Sally Fallon Morell to get your position on the matter.
We’ve all been talking about the World Health Organization release of the findings of the IRCA that red and processed meats are carcinogenic. What did you think of these findings?
is part of a broader effort to keep people from eating meat program – red meat, which is a very healthy food. It is based on a lot of misinformation. First, studies have shown that processed meats are associated with colon cancer. Fresh meat is not associated with colon cancer. And what we do know is that if you are eating foods that have carcinogens in it, like processed meats, many of them have in it. If you are also eating the polyunsaturated oils, will very prone to colon cancer, but if you are eating saturated fat (such as butter, meat fat, lard, coconut oil, etc.) which mitigates carcinogens .
The launch of the WHO did not refer to the quality of the meat and also do not differentiate between factory farmed and raised in pastures. What would you say to consumers, our readers, go to the grocery store, wanting to choose meat for dinner? What they should be buying?
who would really care pork is. Because the pork in the US It is given a drug called ractopamine, which makes lean pork. That drug is banned in Europe. So you really have to be careful that you are buying organic pork meat, pasture-raised. Actually, the best meat in the supermarket are red meat, roast-beef, lamb chops, these are excellent choices.
A lot of people are jumping on the bandwagon on processed meats, especially talking about bacon, hot dogs, but the preservation of meat, dried meat and sausages are hand made has been a part of the traditional cultures of centuries. are preserved, smoked, processed meats and healthy to eat?
Roman armies lived in ham. That’s what they had. This is how people keep meat in the past. In the context of a traditional diet, which certainly is healthy, especially if you are getting a lot of lacto-fermented foods and stay out of fats and processed oils. Because we had smoked meat for how long? Forever.
People are condemning red meat around the Internet, but there are a lot of processed meats that are not red meat. Turkey, for example, is very popular because people have the false assumption that if not red meat is healthy. What do you say to them about eating turkey and other meats?
There are actually more polyunsaturated fats in turkey and chicken, so those options would certainly be less healthy. There is so much trash in sausages and similar products, especially if it is low-fat foods. They have all kinds of fillers and starches and fibers and things they put into trying to imitate fats.
Since WHO came out with their findings, people are afraid that they can not have their salami, bacon, meat bone or the meat to the pan, and is becoming a scare . What do you think about the takeaway for consumers should be?
Generally these are healthy foods. The more natural, more traditional, pasture-raised in these meats are better. This should not be a call for people to give up these healthy foods, but instead of seeking the highest quality.
