In the effort to control your lives, it would seem that even the bacon butty is an evil, cancer causing, devil. From here comes this tale of death and damnation.
Eating two rashers of bacon a day can increase the threat of pancreatic cancer by 19 per cent - and the risk goes up if a person eats more, say experts.
They said the warning applies to anyone who daily consumes 50g of processed meat - the equivalent of one sausage - compared with people who eat none at all.
The extra risk jumps to 38 per cent for those eating 100g and to 57 per cent for people on 150g a day. Experts added that the lifetime danger of developing the disease is relatively low - one in 77 for men and one in 79 for women.
Well I’m going to carry on and die a horrible death from pork. However further on in the article something is amiss. I don’t know if this is the author of this articles mistake, or comes from the researcher.
The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, is by researchers at the respected Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. They examined data from 11 separate studies involving 6,643 cases of pancreatic cancer and found inconclusive evidence on the risks of eating red meat overall compared with consuming none.

Phew, nothing to worry about then.
FFS why can’t these fuckwits get a life and realise that every day we take risks. just give us the facts and allow us to do what we wish.
Just look at the heading on this blog.
Nanny state. Fuck Off. First it was smoking. Then it was drinking. Then they attacked the fatties. Now the humble fair of millions is under threat. Will it never end?
