Memorial Day is right around the corner, and for millions of Americans that means the start of summer, and cookouts with grills loaded up with all sorts of meat. It’s a day of increasing our collective risk for cancer. And particularly dangerous is processed meat: hot dogs, bacon, sausages, and deli lunch meats. The World Health Organization classified processed meat as a Group 1 carcinogen putting it in the same category as cigarette smoking—meaning it does cause cancer. Red meat is considered a Group 2A carcinogen meaning it probably causes cancer. To make matters worse, high cooking temperatures like in grilling creates nitrosamines, carcinogenic substances.
