WCRFI Warning on Cancer Link to Processed Meats

Cold cuts and sandwich meats may make it easier for us to make a sandwich lunch for school and work. But is it healthy? This morning the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRFI) is warning against the frequent use of processed meats like ham, salami, hot dogs and bacon.

This comes in the light of research on adults that found that eating processed meat can increase the risk of bowel cancer. WCRFI argues that this evidence is so overwhelming that they issued the warning to cut down on meats early in life. Asking parents to see such meats as an occasional treat, the WCRFI is asking consumers to reduce their intake of the same alongwith any meat fillers that have high fat and calories.
