Processed meat increases cancer risk

The more you eat, the higher the risk

How many people do you know who love processed meats like bacon, sausage, and even deli meats, and would never give them up?

Researchers in Sweden have identified a potential link between eating processed meat and pancreatic cancer.

According to the findings by the Karolinska Institute, the risk of getting the disease increases by 19 per cent for every 50 grams of processed meat – two rashers of bacon – consumed daily.

Each extra portion will increase the danger, so that eating 100 grams will double the percentage of risk. Though disease is considered rare, it is usually only identified in its advanced stage leading to the deaths of 80 per cent of those diagnosed in under a year.
