So they now fall under the same category as cigarettes. Somehow I don't see governments regulating the sale of pepperoni to minors and taxing the shit out of it in the interests of public health.
How can you be sure my refusal to agree with your claim a symptom of my ignorance and not yours?

According to reports on NPR, the data doesn't look as bad as cigarettes.

Aahhhhhhhhhhhhh shittttt....we all gonna die!
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

First of all I don't think the conclusions are iron clad so much as suggestive. I have a smoker and I'm not going to stop using it.

Commercially prepared processed meats I can see that, because they have a lot of chemicals besides salt and spices. But a typical ham is salt cured and smoked, not a lot of ingredients added. Sausage made at home has salt and spices and fat, but there are no other nitrates or "shelf extenders" needed. Prosciutto, corned beef and pastrami are all cured meats.

Too much salt (sodium) is definitely bad, and practically every diet but straight vegan has an abundance of salt. I know the British diet is heavy on sausages and sweetbreads, so it might certainly need improving.

Sweetbreads, for the less knowledgeable

Cancer and death are natural outcomes of individual biological development.  Trying to cure them are like trying to cure life.  Will never be successful ... you each have an ethical obligation to die, some day.  Same thing with other aging diseases.  Spending a million on trying to give one more year to an octogenarian ... even my own mom ... is unethical.  My mother thinks so too.  Death is a part of life, not an enemy.

Hmm. You just blew your EQ facade.
