Processed meat 'linked to pancreatic cancer'

Processed meat 'linked to pancreatic cancer'

A link between eating processed meat, such as bacon or sausages, and pancreatic cancer has been suggested by researchers in Sweden.

They said eating an extra 50g of processed meat, approximately one sausage, every day would increase a person's risk by 19%.

But the chance of developing the rare cancer remains low.

The World Cancer Research Fund suggested the link may be down to obesity.

Eating red and processed meat has already been linked to bowel cancer. As a result the UK government recommended in 2011 that people eat no more than 70g a day.

Pancreatic cancer is scary because it's mostly not survivable. And I like meat. Hopefully this research is an exaggeration.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. - Charles Darwin
