Eat Bacon, Get Cancer

Eating more processed meats such as bacon, sausage and smoked ham increases the risk of stomach cancer[.] . . . the risk of developing stomach cancer rose by 15 to 38 percent if consumption of processed meats increased by 30 grams (1 ounce) per day.


Ten percent of cancer deaths are stomach cancer. Fifteen studies involving more than 4,700 subjects were studied.

Bummer . . . .

I guess I shouldn't be eating that stuff anyways... but damn it is tasty stuff.

Yet another reinforcement of the phrase "Everything in moderation." I suppose.

Everything but coffee, that is.
