Natural News readers learned about processed meat causing cancer TEN YEARS AGO... mainstream media just figured it out this week


Processed meat

(NaturalNews) Natural News readers knew a decade ago what the mainstream media is finally reporting only this week. Processed meat causes cancer, we're now being told. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified processed meat as being just as dangerous to your health as tobacco smoke. See the Wall Street Journal article here.

If that all sounds familiar, it's because you've read the same news over and over on Natural News throughout the last decade. Had you been a Natural News reader and taken my advice, you could have been protecting yourself from cancer for the last ten years while the world's "scientific" institutions hemmed and hawed on the issue, delaying the obvious for a decade or more.

Here are just a few of the stories I've written and published about sodium nitrite and processed meat over the last ten years. Note carefully that today's Wall Street Journal sounds like Natural News ten years ago. Fascinating how the mainstream media eventually catches up with the pioneering new media, isn't it?

From April, 2005: Bacon, sausage, hot dogs and processed meats hike cancer risk by 67% due to chemical preservative, says nutritionist:

...[T]he huge spike in toxicity and cancer risk can only be explained by something added during meat processing, explains Mike Adams, author of "Grocery Warning," a manual that teaches consumers how to avoid foods that promote chronic disease.

"We've known for years that sodium nitrite consumption leads to leukemia in children and brain tumors in infants," explained Adams. "Now we have a large-scale study of nearly 200,000 people that provides solid evidence of the link between processed meats and pancreatic cancer." The ingredient also promotes colorectal cancer as it passes through the digestive tract.


From August, 2005: The real reason why processed meats are so dangerous to your health:

Have you ever wondered why the consumption of processed meats is so strongly linked to cancers of the colon, breast, prostate and pancreas? ... [The] reason processed meats are so strongly correlated with cancer is, I believe, the continued use of a cancer-promoting additive called sodium nitrite.

This ingredient, which sounds harmless, is actually highly carcinogenic once it enters the human digestive system. There, it forms a variety of nitrosamine compounds that enter the bloodstream and wreak havoc with a number of internal organs: the liver and pancreas in particular. Sodium nitrite is widely regarded as a toxic ingredient, and the USDA actually tried to ban this additive in the 1970's but was vetoed by food manufacturers who complained they had no alternative for preserving packaged meat products.


From November, 2007: Processed Meat Unsafe For Human Consumption; Cancer Experts Warn of Dietary Dangers:

Processed meats, the report explains, are simply too dangerous for human consumption. And why? Because they contain chemical additives that are known to greatly increase the risk of various cancers, including colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, brain tumors, pancreatic cancer and many more... Processed meat has many ingredients and is usually packaged for long-term shelf life. These products almost always contain sodium nitrite, the cancer-causing chemical additive that meat companies use as a color fixer to turn their meat products a bright red "fresh-looking" color.

Check out what I'm warning about today that will be confirmed globally in another decade

Over the last ten years, I've warned Natural News readers about sodium nitrite in processed meat, partially hydrogenated oils, antidepressant drugs, statin drugs and the toxins used in vaccines.

Although it took many years, the mainstream media has now fully acknowledged the risks of most of those items, with vaccines being one of the last holdouts.

What I'm warning about now is Glyphosate and GMOs.

Both glyphosate (herbicide) and GMOs cause cancer. Just as with sodium nitrite, powerful industry forces are running an aggressively financed campaign of denials and obfuscations, trying to delay the inevitable scientific truth from becoming widely accepted. But they can't hire the truth much longer: Genetically modified agriculture is toxic to the planet and toxic to consumers.

Glyphosate is the next big toxin that's going to shock the world when the full truth comes out. It's causing huge numbers of cancer cases across America right now, and it's poisoning farm lands, soils, streams and rivers. Glyphosate is in your wheat products and bread. It's in your veggie burgers and soy milk. It's also in your fast food and restaurant food.

The IARC has already declared glyphosate to be a "probable carcinogen." And the EPA willfully conspired to hide this truth from the public in order to protect the biotech corporations. But thanks to clean food activists like Doctor Oz, the Food Babe, Jeffrey Smith and the Health Ranger, it's now only a matter of time before the Monsanto cover-up crumbles and the rest of the world's institutions recognize the carcinogenic properties of this deadly chemical.

When that day comes, check the archives of Natural News and you'll find we were warning you about this chemical a decade ahead of the mainstream media.

That's why if you want to stay informed, stay healthy and stay ahead of the curve, keep reading NaturalNews.com or Natural News.

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.
