Hot Dogs, Hamburgers and Cancer

Unknowingly, if you are packing ham or salami sandwiches in yours or your kids’ lunch boxes you may be raising their risk of a cancerous condition, according to the World Cancer Research Fund.

Convincing evidence shows that processed acidic meats full of nitrates and nitrites, which include not only ham and salami but also hot dogs and bacon, raise the risk of a cancerous bowel, the organization says.

“Instead of processed toxic acidic meats, cheese, poultry, and fish, Parents should choose alkaline green electron rich fruit and vegetables and low acidic grains, like buckwheat, quinoa or millet,” according to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at the pH Miracle Living Center.

In fact, Dr. Young recommends that children eliminate all animal proteins from their diet because they help form unhealthy acidic habits. “Ham and salami sandwiches could give children habits that increase their risk of developing a cancerous condition later in life. The acids in meat which include uric, sulfuric, phosphoric and nitric acid can cause cancer if not buffered and then eliminated from the body,” states Dr. Young.

“If children have processed meat in their lunch every day, then over the course of a school year, they will be eating quite a lot of it,” said Marni Craze, children’s education manager for the organization. “It is better if children learn to view processed meat as an occasional treat if it is eaten at all.”

Ham and high-calorie snacks might seem like a convenient option, “particularly for parents who do not have a lot of time to prepare their child’s lunchbox,” Craze said.

But packed lunches are a part of a child’s diet that is relatively easy to control and it does not have to take too much time or effort to prepare a healthy alkaline lunch with lots of alkalizing fruit and veggies.

“For example, putting some salad into a sandwich will count towards the five portions of fruit and vegetables children should be eating every day,” she said. “And a small fruit juice instead of a fizzy drink will also give a portion.”

Dr. Young recommends limiting total protein intake to no more than 20 grams a day with the ideal protein intake around 5 grams a day. Dr. Young also suggests that the protein ingested should always come from plant sources like hemp seed, broccoli and avocado and never from animal sources. Dr. Young states, “eating animal protein will not only constipate the bowel but will destroy the delicate root system of the small intestine – the intestinal villi – setting the stage for diabetes and potentially a cancerous colon.”

    You guys would make good Adventists. James and Ellen White recommended this diet in the late 1800s right after the civil war when the rest of the U.S. was eating salted pork.
