A new study out of Johns Hopkins in Baltimore finds eating too many cured meat products can cause you to develop MANIA!

Newsweek reports nitrates in meats like, hot dogs, salami, bacon, and beef jerky have been linked to heightened moods, energy and arousal that can last from a few weeks to several month! However, there is some good news. In moderation, it shouldn’t trigger any mental illness in most people. It’s most likely to happen to those who have already been diagnosed with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.

The researchers studied about 1,100 hospital cases and found that people who were admitted with mania were 3.5 times more likely to have eaten cured meat beforehand than the average person.
