Researchers claim sausage-cancer connection
January 13, 2012 (WPVI) -- Researchers think there could be a connection between processed meats and pancreatic cancer.
Scientists in Sweden looked over 7 previously published studies and found that men and women who ate about 4 ounces of processed meat daily had a 19 percent higher risk of pancreatic cancer. The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, says that's about 4 strips of bacon or 1 sausage link.
According to a report published on ABCNews.com, Dr. Richard Besser said the risk would go from 1.4% to 1.7%.
