(Smoking) & Bacon KIlls

Bacon, ham and sausages rank alongside cigarettes as a major cause of cancer, the World Health Organisation has said.

Its report says each 50g of processed meat a day – the equivalent of one sausage, or less than two slices of bacon – increases the chance of developing bowel cancer by 18 per cent.

Global health experts listed processed meat as a cancer-causing substance – the highest of five possible rankings, shared with alcohol, asbestos, arsenic and cigarettes.

Fresh red meat was ranked on the next level – as a “probable” carcinogen.
