EATING too much bacon is obviously bad for your health but the risks definitely multiply if your pork products originate from Scandinavia.
Health authorities in Sweden have raised significant concerns about packs of radioactive wild boar, which have been spotted moving across the country.
One animal shot by a hunter was found to have more than 10 times the safe level of radiation, according to a UK Telegraph report published this week.
Incredibly the radiation is believed to be a leftover from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, with large amounts of iodine and caesium-137 still present in the soil in areas where radioactive clouds drifted.
The issue is set to spiral into a crisis for farmers, who fear the high levels of radiation will mean hunters stop shooting them and cause a pig population explosion - in turn damaging crops.

Following the mass shooting in Las segas, organisers banned the use of “prop weapons” but there was still lots of fun to be had, with participants believed to include four undead Disney Princesses.
