Great Morning Royal Court,

The meeting last night was phenomenal!! Welcome to Shelby, Susan, Brianne and the entire Wenger family!! Congrats to Christi on her 50 lb. pound loss and Marsha on her 24 inches lost so far!!! AMAZING!!

Last night’s topic: MINIMIZE NITRATES

Nitrates/Nitrites are added to foods for one reason and one reason only: PRESERVATION. They preserve the “pink” color that we have all come to recognize as deli meats. And they are used in protection against botulism, which usually occurs in highly-processed meats.

The consumption of nitrates is extremely dangerous and have been linked to a variety of cancers, such as bladder, colon, esophageal and gastric cancers. It increases the risk of pancreatic and colorectal cancers by 67%. The possibility of leukemia is increased by a whopping 700% by consuming large amounts of processed and nitrate-laden meats. Studies show there is also an increased risk of lung diseases, such as COPD. And lastly, nitrates are EXTREMELY dangerous to fetuses, infants and children.

Meats aren’t supposed to last on your shelf for months at a time. You need to be diligent as to what you purchase and what you bring into your home. READ YOUR LABELS!!
We don’t want to take your hot dogs and pepperoni away…Just be sure to get nitrate/nitrite free, uncured, natural meats. FRESH FRESH FRESH meats only from your local farmers markets, health food stores and stores with whole-food philosophies are the way to go!!!

Let’s face it…we all love our bacon, hot dogs and luncheon meats so make sure that you’re getting the best you can get and protect yourself against what could be hiding inside them!!

Have a great day!!
