English to Slovenian: Health risks of regular consumption of processed meat General field: Medical Detailed field: Medical (general)
Source text - English 6 Facts about Diet and Cancer
The World Health Organization has stated that processed meats (including ham, bacon, salami and frankfurters) are carcinogenic. It's also good to keep in mind that a balanced vegan diet is an excellent strategy for preventing colon cancer and other types of cancer.
Processed meats – definitely carcinogenic:
In October 2015, the World Health Organization first classified processed meats (including ham, bacon, salami and frankfurters) as a Group 1 carcinogen (like cigarettes and asbestos) and red meat as a Group 2A carcinogen (like pesticides and diesel exhaust). This classification is based on over 800 studies, and experts have estimated that every 50g of processed meat consumed per day raises the risk of colon cancer by 18%.
Carcinogens in chicken:
Chicken contains several substances that could be carcinogenic. First of all, animal-based protein, when charred at a high temperature – barbecued , grilled or pan-fried – becomes a quite dangerous carcinogen (one of the same carcinogens found in cigarettes). In this respect, skinless chicken breast is actually more dangerous than chicken breast with skin (however, the saturated fat in the skin also causes its own damage). Furthermore, chicken tends to be polluted with several carcinogens, such as cadmium and dioxins. More research is necessary to determine the correlation between chicken consumption and cancer, but there's one thing we know for sure: it's not going to protect us from the disease.
Dairy could cause prostate cancer:
Dairy is linked to the rise in the risk of prostate cancer and death from the disease. In a research conducted on tens of thousands of doctors in The Harvard School of Public Health, a direct link was found between dairy consumption and fatal prostate cancer (particularly full fat milk) and less fatal types of the disease (particularly skim milk). Researchers estimate that the reasons for this are excessive amounts of calcium, insulin like growth factors (IGF-1), phytic acid and phosphates – all linked to an increased risk of prostate cancer.
Translation - Slovenian 6 dejstev o povezavi prehrane z rakavimi obolenji
Svetovna zdravstvena organizacija – WHO je pred nekaj leti razglasila mesne proizvode, kot so npr. – šunka, slanina, salama ter hrenovke – kot karcenogene. Dobro se je zavedati, da je uravnotežena veganska prehrana že sama po sebi odlična preventivna strategija za preprečevanje raka na črevesju, kot tudi mnogih drugih vrst rakavih obolenj.
Predelano meso – definitivno rakotvorno:
V oktobru 2015 je WHO sprva uvrstila predelane mesne izdelke (vključujoč šunko, slanino, salame ter hrenovke) v 1. skupino karcenogenih, torej - rakotvornih snovi (sem spadajo tudi cigareti in azbest), rdeče meso pa v skupino 2A karcinogenov (vključno s pesticidi ter dizelskimi izpusti). Ta razporeditev je zaključena na podlagi več kot 800 različnih vrst študij, strokovnjaki pa so se strinjali, da se pri zaužitju 50g predelanih mesnih izdelkov dnevno, tveganje za raka na črevesju poveča za kar 18%.
Rakotvornost pri perutnini:
Meso piščanca vsebuje mnoge snovi, ki bi lahko bile rakotvorne. Kot prvo bi veljalo omeniti, da se beljakovine živalskega porekla ob toplotni obdelavi kot sta npr. peka na žaru ali pečene v ponvi, pretvorijo v razmeroma nevarne karcinogene (eden izmed teh je najden tudi v cigaretnih izdelkih). To torej pomeni, da so piščančje prsi brez kože pravzaprav še bolj nevarne kot le-te s kožo (prav tako pa že sama zasičena maščoba povzdroči določeno škodo sama po sebi).
Poleg tega so kokoši zastrupljene in onesnažene še z dodatnimi karcenogeni, kot sta kadmij in razni dioksidi. Še vedno je potrebno veliko raziskav, da bi se dokazalo povezavo med uživanjem piščančjega mesa in rakom, vendar lahko z zagotovostjo rečemo, da sigurno le-to ne bo preprečilo, da bi zboleli.
Mlečni izdelki bi lahko povzročili rak na prostati:
Mlečni izdelki so tesno povezani s tveganjem raka na prostati in smrti kot posledice te bolezni. V raziskavi, ki je bila opravljena na sto-tisočih doktorjev na priznani zdravstveni šolski instituciji Harvard, je bila ugotovljena neposredna povezava med
uživanjem mlečnih izdelkov in smrtnim rakom na prostati (predvsem, ko je šlo za polnomastno mleko) in pa manj smrtonosnimi vrstami bolezni (povezanih s z manjmastnim mlekom). Raziskovalci ugotavljajo, da so vzroki za to predvsem prekomerne količine kalcija, rastni dejavniki podobni inzulinu, fitinska kislina in fosfati – vsi tesno povezani s povišanim tveganjem obolenja za rakom na prostati.

Born in Yugoslavia to multilingual parents, I had the privilege of becoming a native speaker of both Slovenian and Croatian. In those early years, I became very fond of the English language and linguistics in general. I dreamt of becoming an English teacher and traveling the world. Although I didn't pursue a teaching career, I did take advantage of the opportunity to travel and lived in many different cultures during my twenties and early thirties.
I started learning spanish in high-school and visited Spain on various occasions, including multiple academic and non-academic exchanges. As I spent longer stretches of time in the country, my proficiency grew, as did my confidence to communicate with the local communities. I fell in love with Mexico a few years later and discovered the nuances of the Spanish language around the globe.
During my studies at the Faculty of transportation and maritime studies, I started traveling and working abroad on more frequent basis. I pursued a career in tourism and was leaning towards NGO related work, became a volunteeer and an activist. During my student years I worked in restaurants, high-end hotels and managed a smaller hotel on my own. In 2013 I helped with my first book translation (EN>SLO).
2014 was the year I moved to Toronto, where I would live for the next year. There, I have been actively involved in the animal rights movement and volunteered in the local communities. As I spent the year immersed in the Canadian life and culture, I was excited to pursue a long-held dream of mine and traveled across North and Central America for 6 months. From Mexico to Costa Rica is where my Spanish improved significally and I started taking on more roles as an interpreter.
A few years down the road, after living and working between California, Mexico and the Netherlands, I flew to Australia in 2018. All along I was actively speaking Spanish, having the pleasure of being surrounded by fellow Chileans and Argentinians in Port Douglas and Melbourne.
In that same year, I traveled to Indonesia and India, where I trained for and completed my Yoga teacher certificate (200 hrs / Hatha yoga).
I spent 2019 living and working in Amsterdam, where I was blessed to work with many international clients and gained a new insight in Plant-based cooking as a Vegan chef at one of the most renowned Vegan restaurants in the country. I also got some experience as a self-employed caterer, working for Google and other amazing and inspiring companies.
In 2020 I became a licenced Tour Guide in Croatia. Due to COVID-19 "disruption", I decided it was time to devote more of my time to becoming a full-time language service provider.
I'm currently building a home base in Slovenia, as I create a loyal client base as a full-time translator, transcreator and content writer. Recently I've enrolled in a Master's degree program in International Relations at the Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana.
