Ready to eat food need to have preservatives in order to prolong its shelf life. Some preservatives does not really harm our health but there are common preservatives like nitrites or nitrates which are used in processed meat products that is bad for the health. Consuming these preservatives may increase the risk in getting colon cancer. So it should be limited in our diet.
