    i remebering reading deli meats are no good, i used the search function and cannot find where and why.

    asides from the sodium content, why are they no good?

    is sliced turket deli meat (sodium issues aside) bad for you?

    IMO, a quality deli turkey meat is OK, especially since it usually doen't have sodium nitrate.

    yeah, I would say they'd be better than the packaged alternative because they lack the preservatives.

    I think sodium and any preservitives added are the only cons.

    The deli meat thats bad for you is stuff like salami and mortadella. That stuff is processed and has a bunch of stuff ground up and molded into that meat. Turkey is fine though.

    Depends on the deli and the type of meat. Some meats are fatty (especially ground meats).

    They should have info available wherever you're eating. Just ask.
