Study: Processed Meat Ups C Risk

Eating processed meat such as sausages or bacon increases the risk of pancreatic cancer, according to a new study.  Swedish researchers analyzed data from 11 clinical trials and 6,643 pancreatic cancer patients, BBC News reported. They concluded that the risk of pancreatic cancer increases by 19 percent for every 50 grams of processed meat a person adds to their daily diet. Consuming an extra 100 grams per day would boost the risk by 38 percent/USA Today. More here.

Question: Do you eat processed meats much?
