Processed Meat & Cancer

A recent study published in the British Journal of Cancer reveals that for every piece of sausage or bacon a person consumes each day, there's a 19 percent rise in risk of pancreatic cancer.

Researchers reviewed 11 studies and case reports on more than 6,000 pancreatic cancer patients. Findings reveal that the raised risk was tied to every 50 grams of processed meat a person eats per day. Someone who eats 150 grams of processed meat a day - from only three sausages or six strips of bacon - will increase pancreatic cancer risk to 57 percent.

"Pancreatic cancer has poor survival rates," explained study author associate professor Susanna Larsson. "If diet does affect pancreatic cancer, then this could influence public health campaigns to help reduce the number of cases of this disease developing in the first place."

Processed meats, including sausage, pepperoni, bacon, ham, smoked turkey, and hot dogs, often contain nitrates and nitrites, which have been tied to other types of cancer. Last August, a study of 300,000 men and women, published in the journal Cancer, found people who ate large amounts of processed meats had a 30 percent increased risk for bladder cancer.

President For A Day?

What would you do if you were President for a day? Actress Sara Gilbert believes so strongly in the virtues of a vegan diet that when asked what she would do as President for a day, she said she'd make it a law. She proudly stated this last month as a guest on the Rachel Ray Show.

Sara Gilbert, best known as her role as Darlene Conner from the sitcom Roseanne, became vegetarian in her teenage years. In 2008, she adopted a vegan lifestyle and hasn't looked back.

Sara is among the growing list of vegan celebrities: Pamela Anderson, Alec Baldwin, Ed Begley, Jr., James Cromwell, Ellen Degeneres, Emily Deschanel, Woody Harrelson, Heather Mills, Alicia Silverstone, Russell Simmons, and many more.
