    From Rasher to Sausage the cancerous treat switch

    Just read a long piece on the hazards of cured meats,the list includes all my favourites bacon, chorizo, pepperoni etc.

    The upside is fresh sausage not using cured meat is safer.

    It's a long read if you bear with it reveals the same cancer cover up as tobacco by big bacon.

    Please don't shoot the messenger, I'm off to finish the bacon in the case and check out sausage making machines.I think we had a thread , if anyone can suggest a Thai source fordomestic worktop scale.

    https://www.theguardian.com/news/201...rites-sausages

    the summary here,it's nnot the raw bacon it's the nitrites

    The real victims in all this are not people like me who enjoy the occasional bacon-on-sourdough in a hipster cafe. The people who will be worst affected are those – many on low incomes – for whom the cancer risk from bacon is compounded by other risk factors such as eating low-fibre diets with few vegetables or wholegrains. In his book, Coudray points out that in coming years, millions more poor consumers will be affected by preventable colon cancer, as westernised processed meats conquer the developing world.
    Last month, Michele Rivasi, a French MEP, launched a campaign – in collaboration with Coudray – demanding a ban of nitrites from all meat products across Europe. Given how vigorously the bacon industry has fought its corner thus far, a total ban on nitrites looks unlikely.
    But there are other things that could be done about the risk of nitrites in bacon, short of an absolute veto. Better information would be a start. As Corinna Hawkes points out, it is “surprising” that there hasn’t been more of an effort from government to inform people about the risks of eating ham and bacon, perhaps through warning labels on processed meats. But where is the British politician brave enough to cast doubt on bacon?

    Smoked meat is the worst. I saw a study once about non-smoking women in Hong Kong who were getting lung cancer from all the smoked meat they ate.

    Alas and the most delicious, I had smoked reindeer in Finland fantastic, suppose if I'm going to get heart disease, run over by a drunk, drowned by Tsunmao, balls blown by a suicide bummer may as well enjoy my food, but as I like sausages as much as bacon an easy call, even Lotus have half passable Cumberlandish and Garlic/German premium meats and in C Mai there's teh German fella

    Whilst I'm sure that the majority of cured meats in our supermarkets are dodgy I really think that home made snags ans home made curing is safe.
    I was in Woolworth's recently looking for pork mince and beef mince to knock up a bit of a pasta sauce. Beef was available but no pork. I asked the bloke behind the counter if they had any pork mince out the back, his answer intrigued me.
    "No, mate we haven'y got any mince today. We did all the the chops and stuff but there were no bits left over for mince."
    I said, " So your pork mince is just the scraps from all the other cuts?"

    "Yes, that's right. It's anything we have left over on the bench or the floor."

    I now make my own mince.

    In reference to the Cumberland and Garlic/German sausages in Tesco. they're fukin horrible

    Which German fella do you refer to?

    Sausageking is good.
    Sausage King Co.,Ltd

    By the way David, microwaving bacon is not the best way of cooking it.
    I remember the breakfast you served me many moons ago and if you really want to fuck up bacon, microwaving it does the job.
