Don't Buy Processed Meat for Christmas: Health Advocate Publishes "Sick, Disgusting" Photos and Video

(NewsTarget) Consumer health advocate Mike Adams (aka "The Health Ranger") has a beef against shoppers buying processed meat this Christmas. And to show people exactly what they're getting when they purchase processed meat products, he's posted a shockingly disgusting photo tour of a typical processed meat Christmas gift product: The 48-Oz. Hillshire Farm "Yard-O-Beef" Summer Sausage. The photos are available online right now at:

Using a special macro lens and camera flash unit, Adams was able to capture the Yard-O-Beef product in astonishing detail: Black specs emerge with frightening clarity, fat blobs ooze out of tissue caves, and string-like tissue strands seem to be reaching skyward from the surface of the meat products. The images were so frightening that Adams mixed a collage of the photos with a trash beat music track and posted the video on YouTube:

Virtually all processed meat products contain sodium nitrite, Adams says, and that chemical additive has been linked to pancreatic cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer. The World Cancer Research Fund recently completed a review of over 5,000 studies on the link between meat consumption and cancer, concluding that there is no safe level of processed meat consumption and that all consumers should avoid processed meat forever (unless they want cancer). This is the first time that any large global health group has specifically warned consumers about the health dangers of processed meats.

"The most diseased people I've seen are also consumers of processed meat products," Adams said. "It's very clear to me, based on considerable research, that consuming processed meat greatly enhances your risk of various cancers. This stuff is not only disgusting; it's also a very clear danger to your health!"

Boycott Processed Meat Products

Adams urges all shoppers to boycott processed meat products this Christmas season, opting instead for eco-friendly, all-natural gifts such as superfoods from companies like www.Sunfood.com or www.TransitionNutrition.com or www.GoodCauseWellness.com

Adams also reminds consumers that if they give gifts made of processed meats, they are indirectly giving people an increased risk of pancreatic cancer and colon cancer. "Giving someone a gift of processed meat is actually more like a curse than a gift," Adams said. "And beyond the cancer issue, there's also the increased risk of heart disease as well as the environmental implications of following a meat-based diet. Getting rid of meat in their diet is the single most powerful thing consumers can do right now to protect the planet against global warming and climate change."

For those consumers who still choose to purchase meat, Adams urges them to check the ingredients labels for "sodium nitrite" -- the chemical additive that many researchers believe to be responsible for much of the increased cancer risk of processed meat products. "Eating sodium nitrite is quite simply dangerous to your health," Adams said. "Consumers who still want to eat meat products should look for nitrite-free meats, which are often available in the frozen foods or natural foods section of a grocery store." Adams eats no meats other than wild salmon and follows a largely raw foods / living foods diet. His own health statistics are posted online at www.HealthRanger.org

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory 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.

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. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

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 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 over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
