    It is advisable that we should refrain from packaged or processed meat till final report arrives.

    Yes sir. when the study has now taken a shape and the researchers themselves are saying that they are waiting for final report, It is too early to jump to conclusions

    It is hte chemicals used during preservation of processed foods that may cause cancer and that too on prolonged use. Same should hold true frozen vegetables idf chemically preserved. silverlining is that vast number of Indians consume processed food in meager quantities, but one has to take the report seriously if consuming for long periods.

    Processed food and red meat in excessive quantities have always been considered to be unhealthy. At the same time anything in moderation is fine. We Indians have a relatively healthier food habit. Our spices compensate for various ill effects of various food types and also life style. Turmeric, garlic, coriander etc are beneficial and prevent various ailments. After a certain age one has to be a bit careful . Personally I am okay with processed food but in moderation of course.  Bowel cancer is far less in our country as compared to Europe and US if I'm not wrong. Bacon, sausages etc in large quantities are surely not preferable.

    Nothing can substitute fresh food but sometimes when processed food, veg or non-veg, is taken then I think it won't affect ones health. Whenever a chemical is used then it is quite obvious that it will have a negative effect so it will be good to use in moderation .

    Processed foods are usually high in sugar and  high fructose corn syrup.. Several studies confirmed sugar can cause devastating effects on metabolism. Additionally, Processed foods have many ingredients to increase the shelf life, preservatives , colorants which are all chemicals. These ingredients lead to a plethora of  several ailments which slowly lead to slow death.
