I heard this on the radio this morning, its nothing that people didn't really know. Excessive amouts of salt are bad for you, processed meats contain a lot more salt than straight off the bone meat.

What annoys me is that is you buy a decent sausage or burger that hasn't been processed to death your fine, its the prepacked garbage that is bad for you.

"its the prepacked garbage that is bad for you"

No it's not. It's overindulgence in anything that is bad for you. I suspect we are once again about to recieve the sausage gospel according to the 'friendly village butcher'. If so I will be forced to counter (once again) with the sausage conversation between two 'friendly village butchers' in my local pub.

I am sorry I am missing your point, are you saying that a processed sausage or buger is of the same quality of unprocessed meat? I used to work in a village butcher so had many conversations.

You say over overindulgence in anything is bad for you, I agree, but I dont think meat is bad for me. I know some people are of a different opinion.

It's a known fact celery can cause excessive wind and make your teeth drop out.

And if there was any confusion I meant repacked processed garbage :).

I'll eat what I want, I'm overweight but active and generally happily and feel healthy.

I enjoy food and I'll keep enjoying it.

Nothing like a sausage'n'bacon butty dripping in brown sauce!

Also high in sodium and sugars, I think if you Google, you'll find that everything is bad for us, apparently......... we're doomed.

the chewing variety, so as to get rid of the taste of the bread and pork dripping that I frequently consume.

With regards to the title 'Sausages', the only thing that concerns our family is whether the pork or beef content is 10% or 60%.

I often how people survived before we had all these experts, telling us what is good one day, is then bad for us another.
