I don't know what to think of this.

Was there an actual study done?

Doesn't matter. I'm going to go on record as saying ...
1) I believe them completely, and
2) I don't care.

The WCRF advises that people can reduce their bowel cancer risk by eating no more than 500g (cooked weight) per week of red meat, such as beef, pork and lamb.


Risk reduced from what to what?

In my day, back when kids did not even think of entering yards, we had these things called metrics.

I know I'm gonna die.

Seems like a good way.

Processed meat is meat which has been preserved by smoking, curing or salting, or by the addition of preservatives.

So, making these meats safer to eat makes them more dangerous? Wasn't there a reason for preserving the meats in the first place?

A new disease, botchulism.
