Ham for the holidays: The challenge of choosing wisely

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveyResearchpeer-review

Abstract

[Extract]
Jamón can be expensive
Depending on the taste
But if a man can’t tell the difference
It’s just a bloody waste
*
Jamón can be delicious
But it isn’t just the taste
Those pigs are walking olive trees
And better for your waist

Overindulgence at Christmas can blow both the budget and the waistline. Ham—though not to everyone’s taste or not in accordance with all personal, cultural, or religious beliefs—is often on the menu. It can be delicious, but cured meat intake is a risk factor for cancer, several chronic diseases, all cause mortality, and even mania. Choosing wisely and enjoying in moderation may be important.
