The report's recommendations are sensible, for the most part: limit consumption of red meat and alcohol, for example. Nothing we haven't known (and, uh, ignored) for a long time.

That said, one of the study's recommendations is an absolute bombshell, especially for Gut Check:

The panel specifically advocated abstinence from all processed meats, such as bacon, ham and other lunchmeats. They were unable to find a level of consumption that could be considered safe.

No bacon? At all? My God. I don't even know where to begin.

Elsewhere: A healthy diet is a luxury for the poor. (ABC News)

In case you hadn't heard yet, don't eat those Totino's and Jeno's frozen pizzas. E. coli. Again. (Reuters)

You probably shouldn't drink cake-flavored soda, either. (
