Dietitian Natalya Denisova: people put their health at serious risk when they eat sausage every day.

Nutritionist Denisova explained the dangers of eating sausage every day. She told that one of the consequences of such a habit could be excess weight. According to the doctor, people who eat sausage every day are faced with the fact that excess fat forms in their diet, which contributes to weight gain.

“Compared to meat, the amount of fat in sausage increases significantly. For example, 100 g of boiled beef contains 16-17 g of fat. In boiled milk sausage – 22-24 g, in half-smoked sausage – 30-44 g, and in raw smoked sausage – up to 67 g per 100 g of product,” the expert shared.
In addition, the habit of regularly eating sausages is associated with swelling and the appearance of bags under the eyes, as well as high blood pressure. All this is due to the fact that the body receives a lot of salt from sausage. With a constant supply of sodium in a high dosage, fluid is retained in tissues, including vascular tissue. Accumulating moisture, it swells, which complicates the flow of blood through the vessels, causes hypertension, and negatively affects the functioning of the heart, kidneys, and other organs.

Also, Denisova added, the habit of eating sausage increases the risk of such a dangerous pathology as cancer. She warned that sausages contain potential carcinogens: for example, nitrites (added to produce an appetizing pink color) and benzopyrene (may be present in smoked sausage).

“What conclusion can be drawn from all of the above? If you love sausage, then you don’t have to give it up completely, it’s all a matter of quantity. “You can’t afford a couple of slices every day,” the nutritionist summarized.
Earlier, the portal wrote that alcohol in combination with a fatty snack can cause an “explosion” of the pancreas.
