American Meat Institute Calls WCRF Panel Recommendations on Meat Consumption Extreme and Unfounded
Date:10/31/2007

nitrite at these high levels did not cause cancer. Thus experts and the FDA concluded that the extremely low levels used to cure meats are safe as well." NTP is a division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Huffman said there are many misconceptions surrounding nitrite use and that chief among them is the major source of nitrite in the diet. "Humans derive 93 percent of their daily nitrite intake from vegetables and human saliva," he said.

"Less than five percent of human nitrite intake comes from cured meats. If nitrite caused cancer -- which it does not -- then vegetables and swallowing would be the most significant risks to humans. And if nitrite were a carcinogen, then that would make WCRF's recommendations to eat more fruits and vegetables downright dangerous."

"It may not be the most exciting headline, but it is the best advice: eat a balanced diet in moderation," he added. He said that meat products offer one of the best sources of protein, vitamins and minerals, some of which are not found in other foods, but are important for good health. Huffman advised consumers to take the following steps:

-- Eat a balanced diet consistent with U.S Dietary Guidelines.

-- Get daily exercise.

-- Maintain a healthy body weight.
