From Dr. David Eifrig, MD, MBA in Retirement Millionaire Daily:
Last year, the Nanny Police declared war on my favorite breakfast food.
If you remember the headlines, media everywhere shouted that bacon caused cancer on the same level as cigarettes.
A World Health Organization’s (WHO) report officially classified processed meats – like bacon – as a Group 1 cancer-causing agent (or carcinogen). Red meats – like beef and pork – landed in Group 2A.
Some folks let this news scare them into giving up their tasty strips of bacon in the morning. But it shouldn’t…
First of all, Group 1 carcinogens include dangerous stuff like arsenic. They also include paint fumes and sunlight – things that aren’t dangerous unless you have prolonged or repeated exposure. (We’ve often said sunlight is the best way to get vitamin D.) Does this mean we need to stay inside and never paint our houses
