Eating Processed Meat Leads to Early Death, Study Says

This study says don't eat meat; mother natures food; it causes cancer. Whats left, then; bagels, and Kellogs cereal? It found an "association". But it does bring up the nitrite problem. Personally; I take vitamin C and D every time I eat my morning bacon. So whats the deal; with this study; and with nitrites (or nitrates?)
