Processed meat refers to meat that has been preserved through curing, smoking, or other methods such as salting or fermentation. Processed meats include popular products like bacon, sausage, deli meats, and hot dogs, and are often high in salt, fat, and preservatives. While processed meats can be a convenient and tasty addition to many meals, they have been linked to an increased risk of health problems like heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. To promote optimal health and wellbeing, it is important to choose minimally processed or fresh meats whenever possible, and to limit consumption of processed meats.
