Just a warning about the risks of eating cured meats. My ex-husband passed away from stomach cancer a couple of weeks ago. He was basically symptomless until the stomach mass started throwing blood clots and he was hospitalized with a pulmonary embolism. While we had been separated for over 30 years, his death was still a blow and I am heavily involved in consoling our children and grandchildren.
One of the risk factors for stomach cancer is a diet heavy in cured meats (ham, sausage, bacon, hot dogs, many lunch meats, etc.). It is especially suggested that if you have other risks, such as family history of stomach cancer (which my children now have) or a history of ulcers or heartburn, that you decrease your risk by avoiding cured meats and eating a diet high in fruits and veggies. My ex's father also died of stomach cancer, and my ex loved his sausage and bacon, so he had two high risk factors. It's too bad he didn't notify his physician about those risk factors!
Sorry about the digression!
