Abstract or project description

Not enough is being done to address carcinogens in processed meat, which is a problematic discrepancy in comparison to other class one carcinogens. This paper will describe the steps that need to be taken and why. Paper will discuss the following: -Dangers of carcinogens generally, and specifically issues with processed meats -Similar regulations that have been imposed historically -The financial burden of cancer, and specifically cancer caused by processed meats, and how this proposed regulation will lessen these costs -How to enforce this regulation -Sample policy/law text -Arguments against this regulation and why it is still useful in spite of them
