Photo of the Day: Fear Of The Meat
A worker walks in a special room where Parma ham are hung to dry in Langhirano, near Parma, in this October 13, 2009 file photo. The home of Parma ham, trumpeting the benefits of a traditional Mediterranean diet, is urging consumers not to get into a prosciutto panic after a warning that processed meat can cause cancer.
Italian food and farming groups responded indignantly to the World Health Organization (WHO) report that put cured meats, such as ham, sausage and salami, together with asbestos and tobacco on a list of carcinogens. (Photo by Stefano Rellandini/Reuters)
