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

    The WHO is to list processed meat amongst the most cancer causing substances alongside cigarettes and asbestos. Red meat is also going to be added to the list of potentially carcinogenic substances as likely to cause cancer.

    will this impact your family.? For example banning ham or other "sandwich meats"

    will it be "reckless" for school, preschools and other not for profits to hold sausage sizzles as fund raisers?

    Will your our family continue to eat red meat?

    Ive struggled with sandwich Fillings for dd and she loves ham. I'm was even torn before I read the article I wanted to reduce her consumption of Ham to once or twice a week max, but now I'm wondering if I need to eliminate it completely.

    As for red meat that one is harder I just don't know......

    Australian dietary guidelines have, for a long while, recommended only a moderate amount of red meat as part of a healthy diet. So, I don't think that the possible WHO recommendations are actually anything particularly new.

    I'll still be lining up at Bunnings for a sausage in a bun!

    Ham has been known/thought to be carcinogenic for several years now. We don't eat pig, but I know my oldest's daycare were re-considering giving kids ham due to it being a posdible carcinogenic.
    As for sausage sizzles...I'd still buy one for my kids. They only ever have sausages at a party or Bunnings BBQ so only a hanful of times a year. I'm okay with that.

    I'm not sure if you're being genuinely patriotic or humorously ironic :P

    Can't sausages be made from "real" meat, just kind of minced and squashed together? So I'm sure it's not the end of them forever. (We're vegetarian, I don't really know how sausages work)

    Yep. Sausages containing mince are available. I buy failsaife sausages from a butcher. They are preservative free and contain mince, leeks, salt only.

    I'm not a die hard Aussie so I'll go with humorously ironic 😛

    but seriously, it wouldn't be a barbie without a couple of sausages.

    we eat them from time to time but aren't excessive. dh got told he needs to lower his cholesterol anyway so that's kind of put the brakes on those lazy nights where we'd just do a quick BBQ as opposed to cooking.

    I think snags are still ok on occasion.

    the processed deli meats have always struck me as questionable and we've never really bought those.

    These finding will make a huge difference to my family. We we only going to eat organic vegetables. Not even fruit cause that contains too much sugar. Meat causes cancer and dairy is just plain bad. In fact we are not even going to eat bread, rice or pasta because carbs are bad after all. We will also move out of the city so no more pollution. Coffee is also out, it's is a highly addictive drug!
    I will also not be friends with anyone who smokes or drinks alcohol we don't need those influences in our lives.
    Can't wait to live until I'm 120. Fun fun fun.
