Are frankfurters carcinogenic?

  1. One loves it more than the other, but almost everyone has eaten a sausage at some point in their life. Sausages are quick and easy to prepare and can be eaten in many ways. It is well known that frankfurters are not the healthiest food you can eat, but how bad and unhealthy are frankfurters? Are frankfurters carcinogenic?

Processed meat

  1. Sausages fall under the "processed meat" food group. This usually means that meat from one or more animal species is ground and that all kinds of artificial colors and flavors are added to arrive at the final product. Also, all kinds of agents are often added to ensure that the meat has a longer shelf life. Besides frankfurters, known forms of processed meat are corned beef and very cheap types of ham. Other forms of processed meat are salted or smoked meat.

Processed meat research and its link with cancer

  1. A team of 20 researchers from 10 different countries compared and studied more than 800 scientific studies. These studies were about the link between cancer and processed meat. As a result of this research, the World Health Organization (WHO) presented a report in 2015. The studies that have been studied have shown that regularly eating processed meat, and thus frankfurters, can lead to colon cancer. The outcome of this study confirms previous conclusions of the World Cancer Research Fund. As a result of the studies, the WHO has listed processed meat as carcinogenic products because they believe it has a proven carcinogenic effect.

All kinds of frankfurters

  1. One sausage is of course not the other. The packaging of frankfurters always states what percentage of meat is in the sausages and from which animal this meat comes. In addition, all other ingredients that are in the frankfurters are also listed on the packaging. The less meat there is in the frankfurters, the more artificial additives are often in the sausages. This is of course not always the case, for example there are also vegetarian sausages on the market that can be of very good quality. If you want good quality frankfurters, it is best to get them from the Keurslager.

Can I no longer eat frankfurters?

  1. There is no need to stop eating frankfurters and other processed meats altogether, because many products for sale in supermarkets contain artificial additives. In order to avoid potentially harmful additives, you should leave a lot of products with artificial additives. It is wise to limit the consumption of processed meat as much as possible. Meat contains many substances that are very healthy for the body, but in order to get the most out of it, it is better to eat unprocessed meat or eat meat of high quality.

Red meat

  1. The studies also paid attention to the link between eating red meat and the risk of developing cancer. Eating red meat has also been shown to increase the risk of cancer. While the risk is lower than when eating processed meat, the WHO has listed red meat as a "likely carcinogen." It is recommended not to eat more than 500 grams of red meat per week. You don't have to avoid eating red meat completely, because red meat contains a lot of healthy nutrients for the body.
