I was going to point that out as well. The article is about insulin and throwing "processed meats" in there is simply confusing, since protein and fat are fairly minor players in the insulin game.

FWIW, One of the links in the article http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/alzheimers-diabetes-brain indicated a correlation between nitrates and Alzheimer's. This has also been published elsewhere http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/07/090705215239.ht...

Very interesting! Any recommendations out there for how to avoid nitrates in one's food?
