Study: Bacon Linked to 57 Percent Risk of Cancer

A sausage link at breakfast and a few slices of bacon on a sandwich are putting Americans at a dangerously high risk of developing cancer.

According to a study published in the British Journal of Cancer, every sausage and every two strips of bacon increases a person’s chances of developing pancreatic cancer by 19 percent. Furthermore, meat eaters who eat three sausages or six strips of bacon daily can see that percentage skyrocket to 57 percent. The study found red meat consumption came second only to smoking in terms of risk factors associated with pancreatic cancer, with risk increasing for every 50 grams of processed meat a person eats daily. “Pancreatic cancer has poor survival rates,” study author Susanna Larsson said. “If diet does affect pancreatic cancer, then this could influence public health campaigns to help reduce the number of cases of this disease developing in the first place.”
