Have you ever wondered what processed meats look like up close? You may not want to know... especially after you view the photos we've released today of some popular processed meat products. These macro photos, taken with a Canon Digital Rebel XT and a specialized high-end macro lens, show processed meats from Jimmy Dean and Oscar Mayer in jaw-dropping detail. You'll see blobs of fat, stringy textures, curious color variation of meat parts and black chunks of something we cannot yet identify. They're all available for viewing right now on NaturalNews.com as part of our Photo Tours feature.

I took these pictures in my own kitchen (which turned out to be a problem because my kitchen soon reeked of processed meat odors). To acquire these common processed meat items, I visited the local Wal-Mart and purchased three products off the shelf:

• Oscar Mayer Cotto Salami
• Jimmy Dean pork sausage
• Oscar Mayer Smokies (wieners)

I then took each product home, opened it and began taking photos at various magnifications. All the photos shown here are un-edited (no Photoshop) except for adjusting brightness and contrast. These processed meats photos are accurate depictions of the products.

My aim in doing this is to show people exactly what they're eating, up close, if they eat processed meats. While I can marginally tolerate the consumption of organic, free range meat products from animals that are ethically raised and honorably slaughtered, I am adamantly opposed to modern factory farms (cattle feedlots, chicken lots, etc.) as well as the use of toxic, cancer-causing additives in processed meat products. As I've covered in previous articles here on NaturalNews, processed meats are linked to an increase in various cancers, including pancreatic cancers, brain tumors and colon cancers. Feeding hot dogs to children, in my opinion, is a form of child cruelty. Allowing these products to remain in the national food supply is, in my opinion, a form of mass chemical poisoning of the public.

I believe that most consumers who eat processed meat products do so blindly, without really thinking about what they're eating and where it came from. This macrophotography project is intended to show consumers exactly what they're really swallowing when they eat these processed meat products.

WARNING: The detail in these photos is astonishing, and many people will likely be grossed out or sickened by viewing them. Do not view them if you've just eaten processed meats!

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: Nothing in these photos is intended to imply that these processed meat products do not meet FDA or USDA regulations. I have no doubt these products meet all minimum government requirements for human consumption. Then again, the USDA openly approves the use of chicken poop as cattle feed, so you can't exactly say that USDA regulators are really interested in food regulations that most intelligent consumers would agree with. In any case, these photos do not show any evidence whatsoever that Jimmy Dean or Kraft Foods are violating food safety regulations. They merely show these foods at great magnification where visual details are much easier to study. The salami product, in particular, is made with beef hearts!

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, the internet's No. 1 natural health news website, now reaching 7 million unique readers a month.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource now featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released ten popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
