Hot Dogs Dangerous, Red Meats Can Increase Cancer Risk

Standard

I read the following article on Care2.com this morning.  Many of us already know this but it is worth reminding everyone.

On Wednesday, July 22, the Cancer Project, an affiliate of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), a nonprofit organization that advocates vegetarianism and alternatives to animal research, filed a class-action consumer fraud lawsuit to require hot dog manufacturers to place warning labels on hot dog packages sold in New Jersey. The labels would read, “Warning: Consuming hot dogs and other processed meats increases the risk of cancer.”

According to PCRM’s press release, the lawsuit was filed on behalf of three New Jersey residents who purchased hot dogs without knowing that processed meats contribute to colorectal cancer.

Studies show that there is conclusive link between meat consumption and colorectal cancer.

The American Cancer Society even warns, “A diet that is high in red meats (beef, lamb, or liver) and processed meats such as hot dogs, bologna, and lunch meat can increase your colorectal cancer risk.”

Talking about the swine flu, keeping updated, and symptoms

Standard

This swine flu situation has really got me concerned.  I know all of you are too… I am opening up comments here for anybody who just wants to vent and talk about it… leave a comment by clicking on the “comments” link next to the blog title and date… it will open up the comment section for you to view and discuss.  RSS my blog for updates… I will keep links for flu updates here on my blog (such as the Pandemic Monitoring System below, which  you can subscribe to here & they will send you updates as they occur!) until the threat goes away.  WHICH I hope will be soon.  I feel so sorry for all those poor people who have lost loved ones to this, my heart goes out to each one.  Even if it’s not serious in your country… keep those in your mind and heart for whom it is serious, say a prayer for their families… send them some love from your spirit. These days we’re living in just get stranger and stranger. But then, that doesn’t surprise me. Feels like we are living in a sci fi movie… but it’s not pretend. It’s reality.

From what I have read, these are the symptoms… so if you have these, get to the doc PRONTO!

Coughing, joint aches, fever of 100, severe headache, and in some cases, vomiting and diarrhea.

This just in from the RSOE Pandemic Monitoring System (9:42 am CST):

WHO awaits U.S. confirmation on human flu spread
2009.04.28 14:29:12 Geneva

The WHO said on Tuesday it awaited formal confirmation from U.S. authorities the new swine flu virus has spread significantly between people, a sign that could indicate an “imminent” influenza pandemic. Confirmation infected people in two countries are spreading the new disease to their families or contacts in a sustained way would meet the World Health Organisation’s criteria for declaring a phase 5 alert on its scale of 1 to 6.

The United Nations agency raised its pandemic alert level to phase 4 from phase 3 on Monday as the virus spread to Europe. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said on Monday some people who have had contact with confirmed cases were also developing flu-like symptoms. “It appears, and I think we’re still awaiting for a final confirmation from the U.S. authorities, but it appears that there’s a number of cases in New York which appear to be human-to-human transmission,” WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl told a news briefing. Such secondary transmission of the virus was “probable”, he later told reporters, adding: “If we have a confirmation from the United States or Canada, we could move to phase 5.”
