CAN­CER cau­tion

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - HEALTH -

The World Health Or­gan­i­sa­tion is ad­vis­ing peo­ple that eat­ing too much pro­cessed meat can cause can­cer, which may be due to the chem­i­cals formed when meats such as ba­con, ham and sausages are made. A re­port re­vealed that con­sum­ing less than two slices of ba­con daily in­creased the chance of get­ting col­orec­tal can­cer by 18 per cent. But it also stressed that an oc­ca­sional ba­con butty won’t hurt.
