Processed Meat

According to new research by ‘World Cancer Research Fund’, eating one sausage or excessive processed meats (meats that have any from of preservative in them) increases your chances of developing bowel cancer by about 20%.

Eating just one sausage or around three rashers of bacon a day can increase the risk of developing bowel cancer by a fifth, an expert warned.

Just 1.8oz (50g) of processed meat daily increases the chances of getting bowel cancer by around 20%.

This is a sliding scale, so the more you eat the higher the percentage risk, and the less you eat, vice versa.
