Hang on for a Bacon Tax

Because you know that's where this is going if democrats have their way.

OMG! Bacon causes cancer
Pigging out will kill you, the World Health Organization said Monday — warning that bacon, sausage and other processed meats are now in the same category of cancer risk as smoking cigarettes and inhaling asbestos.

Hot dogs, ham, corned beef and almost every other salted, cured or smoked delicacy have been officially classified as “carcinogenic to humans” — and red meat as “probably carcinogenic” — based on a study by 22 scientists from the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer in Lyon, France.

Experts concluded that each 50 gram portion of processed meat eaten daily increases the risk of colorectal #cancer by 18%

The agency revealed their findings Monday.

“For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed,” said Dr Kurt Straif, head of the IARC Monographs Programme. “In view of the large number of people who consume processed meat, the global impact on cancer incidence is of public health importance.”~snip~
Before long we'll hear the howls from the liberal moonbats that they'll have to levy a tax on bacon and other processed meats to price them out of range for the vulnerable poor.
Just like they did for cigarettes and want to do for carbon dioxide, soda drinks, red meat, alcohol and anything else they can think of to confiscate our money for them to spend.
