A piece of bacon a day increases the risk of cancer



(KCCI / CNN) – Bad news for bacon lovers! A study claiming to eat a slice of bacon every day could increase the risk of cancer.

Researchers tracked nearly half a million adults in the UK for five years. They found every 25 grams of processed meat, such as sausage or bacon, eaten every day, a person's risk of colorectal cancer increased by 20 percent.

Twenty-five grams is approx. 0.8 ounces and corresponds roughly to a thin piece of bacon

. Red meat also caused an increase in risk, but it took a greater amount for the same effect.

Scientists discovered when a person ate just over half and a half red meat, their cancer risk increased by 1

9 percent. A typical hamburger is approx. four ounces of meat.
