What Happens To Your Body When You Eat Bacon

What Happens To Your Body When You Eat Bacon

– As a matter of fact,
the consumption of bacon, and hot dogs, and
pastrami, and lunch meats, even prior to conception in women, increase the risk of childhood cancers or autism, or brain
tumors in their offspring. (light music) – Many people don’t know,
but the fumes that you smell when you cook bacon are
actually carcinogenic. You’re eating cooked
meat that is processed, high in salt, high in fat, so that can actually immediately
constrict your arteries, and they have actually seen
children as low as eight, nine years old, already showing signs of constriction of their arterial system, and we all know that a high salt diet is also increased with
increased risk of mortality, definitely processed meat
as well as colon cancer, and all types of cancer. – When you eat too much animal protein, there appear to be unfavorable effects on many different levels. You know, there has been interesting work looking at the gut microbiome, and metabolites that might be
released into the bloodstream that might play a powerful role in terms of promoting inflammation. We also know that the body is not able to process meat as well. This might have adverse
effects in terms of just your ability to properly regulate your own sugars, your blood sugars, and a lot of things like that end up being out of balance, and again, promote inflammation. This ends up being a bit
of a snowball effect. – So when we eat bacon, what happens is that we introduce the
introduction of excess cholesterol. Our body actually produces cholesterol. The liver makes cholesterol, and it makes just enough cholesterol to satisfy all the hormones in the body, but when we introduce excess cholesterol, the body says hey, this is great. You’ve given me some extra cholesterol. I better store it because I
don’t know what’s gonna happen. We might be in an ice age tomorrow. We might be in a drought. I’m gonna store it because
it’s a really good product. And the problem is it starts
to store it in the organs. It starts to store it in
the liver, in the muscles, and in the vessels, so within
those nice circular vessels, the cholesterol starts getting
deposited in the vessels, and it builds up slowly and slowly. And the vessels don’t like it. The process of atherosclerosis is actually one where
the body starts to attack those cholesterol deposits
that go into the vessels, and of course, it builds
up and up, and up, and up, and the vessels close,
close, close, close. And that means that you
have impaired blood flow to the key organs. – Well, all of the things
that are risk factors associated with eating high
amounts of animal foods, increased risk of cancer, increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, increased risk of coronary artery disease. It’s significantly worse when you eat this processed garbage,
I mean bacon and hot dogs, and I’ve often thought
that one of the things that we could do to discourage people from even wanting to eat these things is to show them a short video
about how hot dogs are made. A significantly higher risk of chronic degenerative conditions, and much more severe
forms of those conditions, particularly cancer, when you eat processed meats like bacon
and sausage and hot dogs. – Hypertension, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, hypothyroidism, cognitive decline, insulin
resistance, diabetes, cancer, you name it, and so
processed meat in general is considered a class one carcinogen, and not only can it increase
your risk for cancer, but as far as diabetes is concerned, processed meats, meat in general, foods that are relatively high
in their total fat content, end up depositing small amounts of fat inside of your muscle tissue and inside of your liver tissue every single time you eat that food. So as those lipid droplets become larger inside of muscle cells and liver cells, then you end up developing
insulin resistance, which is that insulin has a difficult time communicating with those tissues. – Hi everybody, this is Klaus. I just want to come in quickly and say firstly, thank you very much
for watching this video. Secondly, I wanted to
talk very, very briefly about a new partnership. We’ve partnered with a
new group called NFI Diet. They provide whole food,
plant based meal guides that go a step farther
than anything in the past by completely personalizing them. The protocol is being studied at National Institute in New York, and they’re getting some amazing results, including rapid weight loss as well as Type 2 diabetes remission,
often within weeks. Please check out the link down below if you want to find out more. Hope you enjoy the rest of the video. – So we know that if you expose any part of your digestive tract
to a processed meat product you’re putting that part of your body at higher risk for developing cancer, and most notably, or infamously, is the colorectal cancer risk
with processed meat products. Bacon, and other processed meat is a class one carcinogen, and in the World Health Organization, that means that the research is so strong to show that it causes,
not associated with, but it causes colo-rectal cancer. That’s as much research, and
that’s as strong in evidence as you see with products
like tobacco and lung cancer. – The heme iron in bacon
is also toxic to cells, and it creates oxidative
stress and inflammation, which damages cells,
and makes it more prone to DNA damage, and therefore cancer. It also causes cells to
be insulin-resistant, and therefore increase risk of diabetes. Bacon is high in salt,
and we know that salt increases our risk of
developing hypertension, so high blood pressure, which is again, directly related to our
risk of heart disease. – You know how many
articles had to be published before the Surgeon General
of the United States put out a warning against cigarettes? 7000 studies, right? Before they would be alerted. Do you think that there was a tough lobby in Congress against killing
the tobacco industry? I mean, can you imagine the
power of something like– Well, here we are trying to kill the meat, dairy, egg, pork, and sugar industry. Think there’s any power against us? (laughs) Listen, it’s the challenges
in life that are exciting, and the word is gonna get out there, yeah. – Those foods are
hormonally unfavorable too, because when you eat a lot
of these animal products, it pushes up hormones,
fat storage hormones, growth hormones, like IGF-1,
insulin-like growth factor 1. What I’m saying here, for a
diet to be hormonally favorable, it has to be low in
processed carbohydrates, ’cause processed carbohydrates could push up insulin too high. But the diet has to be low
in animal products too, because too much animal products pushes up insulin-like growth factor 1 too high. It’s also processed meat, which is full of nitrosaminal compounds, which are known carcinogens. As a matter of fact, the
consumption of bacon and hot dogs, and pastrami, and lunch meats, even prior to conception in women, increased the risk of childhood cancers or autism, or brain
tumors in their offspring. These foods are very dangerous foods. You know, they should
come with a warning label on the package. (light music)
