Demand a Label on Processed Meat - A Type One Carcinogen

This petition had 545 supporters

In 2015 the International Agency on Research of Cancer and World Health Organization declared processed meat a group one carcinogen (the highest ranking of cancer causing agents) alongside cigarettes and asbestos. Red meat was classified a group two carcinogen meaning it is probably carcinogenic to humans as well. Although these facts have been published by the IARC and WHO, many people are unaware of the repercussions of eating processed meat and remain negligent to the facts. Our goal is to educate consumers and facilitate making healthier as well as safer choices by putting a label on processed meats that highlight their carcinogenicity. We hope to achieve a label similar to those seen on cigarette packs, which have had substantial impacts on cigarette smoking rates.
