    When I first saw this thread it didn't show the "sizzle" part. So I thought it had something to do with sausage ends. I thought I could contribute this...

    Then i read the thread and realized it was something totally different. Fwiw I'm a full believer of everything in moderation. I could never not eat red meat as I enjoy lamb and beef way too much. I think we have to be sensible about it all. If you cut everything out that could ever be bad for you, we'd be left with nothing!

    I know this is tongue in cheek but, cancer rates are sky high in alot of rural towns. Where I live it is anyway. I personally think it has a lot to do with all the chemicals they spray on all the surrounding wheat fields. The sun is also much harsher here too, more cases of skin cancer.

    Well I love deli meat and red meat, so I may as well start nibbling on asbestos too now.

    Seriously not going to change a thing here.

    Won't change anything here. I think my kids have a very reasonable, balanced diet. We occasionally have sausages, I buy good quality ones and limit how much of it they eat.

    I already don't allow things like devon or other highly processed sandwich meats but we do use ham occasionally. All about balance really.

    Default The end of the sausage sizzle.....

    The fact that WHO is listing these alongside asbestos makes me think they are not OK in moderation? I'd never say moderate exposure to asbestos is OK.

    I need more info though, I already buy Nitrate free ham and bacon from the butcher and my DH makes our sausages out of just meat and spices and salt. But is it the smoking or the salting or the nitrates that are cancer causing? Ie is nitrate free ham ok or is the salt and smoking still making it cancer causing.

    As someone who seems to be living in the middle of a cancer sh!t storm I will do anything to eliminate known carcinogens (and gave already gone to lengths to do this).

    the smoking process (I think!!) and the nitrates are carcinogens.

    there's a bit more basic info here on what they are and why they're in meats

    Thanks for that. I knew Nitrates/Nitrites were bad which is why I pay through the nose for specialty products from the butcher but they are salted and smoked so maybe a no go. I wish they gave more detailed information so people can make informed choices.
