For those not in the know, the WHO released a study today saying that Bacon, hot dogs and other processed meats cause cancer. They further say that red meat "probably" causes cancer. A common reply to the various comment threads is something along this conversation
So people give themselves a pass with this research with the excuse "I eat locally sourced, hipster raised, nanobatch smoked bacon so I'm ok".
Is this a valid reaction? Or does the research cover all processed meats, regardless of preservatives?
