‘A Meaty Issue’ Part of the Relationship with Food Series: ‘Learning to Choose Our Diet Carefully’

Lately, I’ve been watching a programme on Netflix called (x) which examines the link between diet and diabetes- the single biggest cause of death in the US (According to Nichols, 2017)

In the programme, leading MDs and health professionals make a direct link between processed meats such as bacon and sausages (which are said to be as deadly as cigarettes!) and a whole host of health related conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease to name a few. I’ve heard of these rumours before but I’m also sceptical of the evidence. If it’s true, why has the evidence been hidden for so long? And if it’s false, why would the press be allowed to spread such false rumours. Welcome to another fabulous ‘Zest Quest’. I hope to find out the answers for you.

 

Happy Beautiful day everyone,

Kate Smiles,

Caretaker CEO Zest and Fresh Mental Health Services
