Hey guys … sorry for the long delay … but I’m back again! And ready to blog!!!
Here’s your toxic tip of the day!!!
Now, if there’s one thing I’ve learned about science, it’s that reading it can be somewhat of a bore. But I wanted to expand on my last post, more specifically about the toxicity of nitrosamines.
Here it goes.
N-Nitrosamines are produced from nitrites and secondary amines (or proteins). There are over 400 different nitrosamines, 90% are carcinogenic. More specifically, cancerous forms of nitrosamines form under acidic conditions similar to those found in the human stomach–meaning human stomach cancer!
Nitrosamines can be found in beer, fish, meat, cheese, and in food preserved with sodium nitrite, like nitrile-cured bacon. In other words, nitrosamines are commonly found in our food!
On a more personal note …
I went to Kentucky this past week to meet my boyfriend’s grandparents for the first time. It was a very interesting experience … especially because I’m terrified of big bugs–more specifically wasps/bees/big flying scary things!!! And let me just tell you … Kentucky wasps are humongous!!!! But besides the bugs, I loved his family and their beautiful farm! His grandparents were amazingly nice and sweet and made me feel right at home! We indulged in tons of fruits and veggies–my fave!!! And we even made homemade ice cream–which I enjoyed after quite a few lactase pills! I took a ton of photos, specifically for my blog, and wanted to share a few!
And last but not least …
What A Lovely Trip!!!
