Sausage, Bacon, and Hot Dogs = Heart Attack Risk

A study by Reuters points-out evidence
that processed meats raises the risk
of heart disease and diabetes.

Researchers base their conclusions on
1,600 studies. One hot dog per day, 1.8
ounces of processed meats- cured, smoked,
salted or preserved with nitrates- increases
the chance of a heart attack by 42 percent.

The risk of diabetes goes up by 19 percent.

They found unprocessed meats, beef, pork, had
no effect on heart disease, diabetes- even if
the meats had the same amounts of saturated
fat and cholesterol.

Processed meats have 4 times the sodium, salt.

"To lower risk of heart attacks and diabetes,
people should consider which types of meats
they are eating," explained Renata Micha,
the Harvard School of Public Health.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
