    I read in a stick that I should avoid eating deli meat. I eat pretty heathyl food, but I love deli turkey and ham. So what is it, the addatives? sugar and sodium?

    Thanks in advance!

    nothing, it's just all the preservatives they add to make it last longer

    How much do they really add though? the stuff I buy from the deli doesn't really last that long.

    alot of times they add in alof off procced ingrediants and sugars. they also probably dont have as much protein as you think.

    i do eat the fat free turkey or chicken breast sometimes for a snack though

    dunno but I wouldn't really worry about it. Everything these days has some kinda chemical, hormone, etc injected in it

    deli sliced meat is full of bacteria...
    a sister company of where i worked was a food testing company...
    they would go to lunch and bring back leftovers to test, and deli meat- they would always find traces of ecoli, listeria

    Yah, seeems it's pretty hard to avoid preservatives and sugars these days. Deli meats are definietly better then your prepackaged Oscar Myer shit though.
