From article:

Quote:Everyone knows that bacon, ham and sausages aren't exactly health food. However, a recent study has outlined just how dangerous these and other processed meats are. The study found that eating processed meat significantly raises the risk of premature death, certain types of cancer and heart disease.

According to the Guardian, the enormous study was conducted by procuring data from 448,568 people in Europe, including in England, Germany and Spain. Many of these participants were tracked from the 1990s until well into the 2000's.

According to NPR, the researchers found that eating 20 grams of processed meat a day raised the risk of heart attacks, stroke and certain types of cancer. In fact, 20 grams is the mere equivalent of eating a thin strip of bacon a day. The largest consumers of processed meat had a 44 percent greater likelihood of dying prematurely of any cause than consumers who ate little processed meat. In fact, high levels of processed meat consumption raised the risk of heart disease by 72 percent and the risk of cancer by 11 percent. In particular, processed meats heightened the risk of bowel cancer; in the United Kingdom, if everyone ate fewer than 10 grams of processed meats a day, there would be 4,100 fewer cases of the disease.

How many times is this going to be "news"?

I question the general assumption that felines are inherently deficient in the area of grammar and sentence structure.

Seems like I've been reading about this since I was a kid.

What the study doesn't mention is what else these big consumers are eating. I would guess they put this processed meat on bread perhaps? Wheat will make you sick eventually.

I have a feeling that you have a feeling that they have a feeling that I have a feeling that we know it's the bread..

You know what I mean?
