Processed Meat: 15 Facts About the Food We Eat Daily Will Horrify You! (Video)

processed meat

*Looks good, but what’s really in it?

Many of us have already let the red meat go, but we’re still on the fence about the chicken and fish.

Well after watching this video, all of it might be a done deal.

The two-minute Buzzfeed video talks about processed meat. That’s any meat that is smoked, frozen, canned or preserved with the addition of  chemicals.

It shows us salmon wrapped in plastic, raw chicken hanging as if thawing out.

OK, looks innocent enough, right?

But then it hits us with “facts” such as the FDA allows four rodent hairs per 100 grams of processed food. And this news is sitting right next to a hamburger. 

Screeching car sound! Wait. What?

This video is filled with all kinds of info. And just wait until you see what hotdogs are filled with.

And did you know that eating processed meat gives you a greater chance of getting…wait for it…bowel cancer?

Of course its not clear where all of these food facts are coming from. The credits simply show a variety of news and blog sources. But its pretty interesting stuff and I wouldn’t totally ignore it.
