I suppose it was only a matter of time before the Maoist wannabes, desperately attempting to control every aspect of our live’s finally got up the nerve to go after bacon.
That’s right, bacon is now as dangerous as cigarettes, according to the World Health Organization – and they have their sites on burgers and sausages and I’m sure fries, brisket, hot dogs and whatever else we’ve been enjoying at cookouts and breakfast our entire lives.
Liberals have an unnatural urge to control you – especially if it’s something really important to you like free speech, the right to protect your family and property, practicing your faith and now: Bacon.
The World Health Organization (WHO) will soon warn that some of America’s favorite meats are as dangerous a cigarettes! The ranking will put burgers and bacon alongside asbestos, arsenic, cigarettes and alcohol. The justification behind the decision, is that when meat is being preserved through processes like smoking carcinogens can be added.
Bacon, burgers and sausages are as big a cancer threat as cigarettes, global health chiefs are to rule.
The World Health Organisation is to list processed meat among the most cancer-causing substances, alongside arsenic and asbestos.
Fresh red meat is also due to join the ‘encyclopaedia of carcinogens’ and is likely to be ranked as only slightly less dangerous than the preserved products.
The rulings, revealed to the Mail by a well-placed source, will send shock waves through the farming industry and the fast food sector.
They could also lead to new dietary guidelines and warning labels on packs of bacon.
The classifications, by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, come amid mounting concern that meat fuels the disease which claims more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK.
Any advice to cut, or avoid, processed meat will be welcomed by cancer charities.
But it could have huge repercussions for the meat industry, which will be mindful that sugar sales fell last year after the WHO issued a warning on overconsumption. The decision is already drawing fire from scientists and meat experts, with the North American Meat Institute claiming the the report went against “both common sense and dozens of studies showing no correlation between meat and cancer.”
Bottom line? They’re going too far.
When they start coming for your bacon, it’s time to pick up the torches and pitchforks and march on Washington and every other Capitol in the world: Right after the cookout.
Don’t want to go on a long journey on an empty stomach.
