10 Things I Don't Give A Ham About

I've got some beef with beef.

1. Chicken Nuggets

Chicken nuggets are great and all, but the amount of preservatives and hormones are a turn off.

2. Steak

It may be Ron Swanson's favorite meal, but it's packed full of carcinogens that could harm your body.

3. Bacon

Bacon looks good and it tastes good, but it puts you at risk for heart disease and and leads to higher levels of stress.

4. Ribs

They transport your taste buds to heaven, but they can also transport you to the hospital.

5. Turkey

While it's the highlight of thanksgiving, turkey can cause lots of health problems if you eat tons of it.

6. Salami

Yep, pepperoni pizzas are pretty bad for you - the fat contents in salami are through the roof.

7. Corned Beef

The amount of sodium in 1 serving of corned beef makes it extremely unhealthy to eat.

8. Beef Jerky

It makes a great snack, but it also makes up over 20% of your daily sodium intake... Yikes.

9. Spam

Tumblr / Via tumblr.com

It's hated by most people, and for good reason: Spam is extremely high in fat and sodium, which can contribute to health problems later on in life.

10. Ham

Ham has way too much saturated fat, which results in higher cholesterol levels and an increased risk of developing cancer.

Tell the world you #DontGiveAHam and share what you don't give a ham about!
