Processed meats carcinogenic says WHO

Processed meats carcinogenic says WHO

The WHO has put bacon, sausages, ham and salamis in the same carcinogen category as alcohol, asbestos, arsenic and tobacco.

However, within days it was saying that this should not stop people eating them! Research indicates their consumption is linked to an increased risk of colorectal cancer.

Red meat consumption by contrast is only deemed a ‘probable’ carcinogen, putting it on a par with EMFs. IARC who provide the ammunition for the WHO, have decided 34,000 people die a year from eating processed meats.

However, tobacco, arsenic and asbestos has no safe limit. Even the WHO point out that a little ham or bacon would not be too harmful.
