  • Consumption of other smoked animal products

    It seems like a smart thing to do to limit processed red meat intake, especially if you are consuming substantial portions every day, but what about other smoked animal products, such as smoked salmon? Marine animal products can be quite health promoting, but are there risks from consuming smoked salmon due to the smoking process?

    Smoked salmon is also considered a processed meat and contains many of the elements thought to be potentially harmful in other processed meats. While salmon can be part of a health-promoting diet, smoking it probably reduces this health-promoting effect.

        The presence of heterocyclic amines (HCA), which formed when amino acids in meat react with high temperatures and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from smoke that adhere to the surface of the meat during cooking.

          I assume it’s a “ poison is in the dose” kind of thing ? As in once in awhile probably has no effect but don’t be eating your protein in that way weekly

            An explanation of the nutritional losses associated with common methods of food processing.


            It is brief good read here on nutrition data regarding high temperature and smoke when grilling meat!

              In a word, yes.

              I'd read this guy to give some more perspective:

              Meat is an important dietary component for much of the world, whereas the prevalence of veganism or vegetarianism varies widely in different countries. For example, India has the highest proportion of vegetarians at ~30% of the population, whereas only 5% and 2% of Americans are vegetarians or vegans, respectively. 1 Going “meatless” is also on
