Stereotypes

There is nothing more dangerous than talking about religion and food. On my Facebook account I have plenty of American friends who regularly boast about the amount of bacon they eat. It’s almost like a dare to many.

Generally everybody who doesn’t like bacon is labelled as a Muslim.

There are however food health research results advocating that eating bacon is dangerous for the health because the meat is cured with a lot of salt.

The Guardian was running a story on bacon and why it is killing us. Sausages are also not healthy if eaten in excess.

Also Madison doesn’t like her food over-brown, and literally browning and roasting food is also dangerous to an extent.

The Times reports that in California a court has ordered that sellers of coffee have to warn about cancer causing qualities. Apparently during the roasting “The chemical, acrylamide, is produced during the coffee bean roasting process, as well as when sugars and amino acids found in other foods are cooked at high temperatures.”

Our household is using very little salt. Madison was raised on eating little salt. So eating bacon is just being associated with a salty taste that Madison dislikes. Yet looking Asian and disliking bacon is almost always associated in being a Muslim who dislikes bacon .I think people should not associate looks of people with the health of some foods.

During our last holiday in Germany we were served chips that had a thick salt crust on them, my relative said that this is just what Germans eat. So Germany is not our favourite holiday spot any longer.
