Saying "Processed meat" causes cancer* is about as specific as saying "ceiling insulation" causes cancer.


I am not surprised that nitrites, other preservatives and anti-oxidants are carcinogenic on their own or as a combination with meat.

If meat + salt +/- pepper, thyme and savory , namely Parma, Serrano, File Elena or any of the other similar "dry cured" _REAL_ processed meat from the northern rim of the Mediterranean region (not synthetic pseudobacon or pseudoham) is carcinogenic I would like tho understand what and how.
