Eating Kills You

Ok, so they don't say that, but they might just as well! Every week they come up with something else we mustn't do or mustn't eat!





Bacon Eaters Warned Of Deadly Cancer Risk

9:11am UK, Friday January 13, 2012

Isabel Webster, Sky News correspondent

Eating two rashers of bacon or one sausage a day can increase the risk of a deadly form of cancer by almost a fifth, according to a new study.
New research by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm has found that eating 50g of processed meat a day can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 19%.

For people consuming 100g of processed meat, the risk jumps to 38% and to 57% for those eating 150g a day.

But experts cautioned that the overall risk of pancreatic cancer was relatively low. In the UK, it is one in 77 for men and one in 79 for women.

Nevertheless, the disease is a killer and only five percent of sufferers are still alive five years after diagnosis.

The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, is based on data from 11 studies including 6,643 cases of pancreatic cancer.

It found a 29% increase in the risk of getting pancreatic for men eating 120g of red meat a day - but no greater risk among women.


Eat in moderation but source quality meat. If people buy local they know where it is from and what it has been fed.

This may be because men in the study generally ate more red meat than women.

The study concluded: "Findings from this meta-analysis indicate that processed meat consumption is positively associated with pancreatic cancer risk.

"Red meat consumption was associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in men. Further prospective studies are needed to confirm these findings."

It is another blow to the meat industry, which has already had to accept an established link between red meat and bowel cancer.

Pig breeder Mark Hook from Bristol believes moderation and quality meat is the key.

He said: "Eat in moderation but source quality meat. If people buy local they know where it is from, what it has been fed but a knee-jerk reaction to this is simply scaremongering."

While more large studies are needed to confirm the link between meat and pancreatic cancer, the findings are being taken seriously by experts.

Jessica Harris, health information manager at Cancer Research UK, said: "The authors of this study have suggested that one of the reasons could be that some of the chemicals that are used to preserve processed meat are turned in our bodies into some really harmful chemicals which can affect our DNA and increase the chance of cancer."

The World Cancer Research Fund is advising consumers to limit their intake of cooked red meat to 500g a week and to avoid processed meat altogether.

No two sausages are the same. As a seasoned sausage sampler I should know.

It does! I've given up worrying too much about it. Life is for living and I'd much rather enjoy whatever time I have x

'A Seasoned Sausage Sampler'! The should write a song about that, in fact I might turn it into a rhymn! Of course you are right, good sausages, made with decent meat and seasoning can't do you any more harm than eating the meat, its only minced up. Mind you, some of the packet ones I wouldn't like to say! They could be floor sweepings!

Will look out for them FTL, although I don't need any just yet. Before Christmas OH came back and asked if I had room in the freezer. Gave him a funny and asked why? Turned out he had ordered for packs of Cumberland sausage from a butcher who specialises in them. What he had not realised was that a 'pack' was a tray of one sausage wound round on a tray, said sausage being 9ft long!!!!!!!!!!! So we had 36ft of sausage! Let Nems make something of that!
