Nitrates are not actually bad at all for you considering your body needs them in order to balance NO production, test, gh, igf and other hormones. If your really worried about it dont crips you bacon processed meats and such low heat, longer cooking time if your bacon and he like start to turn a orange color its too hot that the conversion of nitrate to nittrite, which you dont want. Just saying
If i could afford it i would eat a 1-2lbs of bacon a day
Well actually i’ve started since today to make the bacon less crispy:D Of course your body needs the nitrates,but like the AD diet (and for me atm its a lifestyle), you would be consuming a lot of it and that can never be good. Thanks for your response by the way.I’m not worried about the nitrates i’m worried about the conversion of it into nitrite.
Theres a strong correlation between nitrates/ites and stomach cancer, and not a ton of scientific evidence to suggest that high doses of vitamin c counterbalances it.
I will say that if youre consuming a significant amount of nitrates/ites to make sure youre getting a ton of fiber in your diet (reduces the time that it takes for this stuff to go through your digestive system, thus reducing exposure to carcinogens), and definitely make sure you keep up on your colonoscopys often enough when you get older.
Cuz if you look at the data people in Japan (large amount of nitrates/ites pickled/smoked foods) they got a much higher rate of stomach cancer.
I couldnt tell ya shit about the cheeses (since im very lactose intolerant I dont give a shit about dairy), but theres tons of alternatives to the meats. Either find nitrate free meats, or just go for alternative meats that you can use for w.e (ie tuna, chicken turkey etc)
Eitherway be smart if youre going heavy on this stuff, the cancer concern is completely legit [/quote]
Thanx for the comments. I don’t know if what i’m eating is going heavy on the stuff,i’m eating 4 or 5 slices of bacon eachy day, 50 till 70 grams of salami, i let may wife make my pork sausages,feta,gouda,brie. Not more than 150 grams of cheese per day and not more than 70 grams of salami per day. I read about raw cheeses but are they nitrate free? And its it dangerous to eat them or not when the makers follow the 60 day rule? Next week gonna order me some grassfed meat and reusable wate bottles to start with and will look for some substitutions for the salami ect. Lol than of course you have water,veggies hehehe…Didn’t know about the fiber thing and nitrate though, will read about it.[/quote]
