Past research from Bio Med Central has shown that processed meats are linked to an early death risk. Now, new research from the World Health Organization (WHO) adds to the health risks, showing that bacon and other processed meats can cause cancer.
According to reports, WHO is getting ready to declare that bacon, sausage, and other processed meats do cause cancer. They are also expected to announce that red meat is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
Processed meat is expected to be put in the same category as harmful substances like cigarettes, asbestos, and alcohol.
