Who Knew?

When you buy certified organic processed meats (bacon, ham, salami, etc.) with the words “uncured” and “no nitrates” on the package, you can safely assume you’re avoiding cancer-causing substances, right?

Not if the meat you buy also contains non-organic celery powder produced with chemical nitrate fertilizer.

When members of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) convene in Pittsburgh this month, they’ll address several controversial issues, including this one: Should celery powder be allowed in certified organic processed meats?

Celery powder? Controversial?

Surely something so harmless as celery powder couldn’t have anything to do with the carcinogens found in processed meat from factory farms, could it?

It could. And it’s time the NOSB did something about it.
