classified in the same category as cigarettes and asbestos. they can cause cancer, according to the world health organization, and that's not all. the who advisory commit fee tinding that unprocessed red meat is probably cars jennic. the report, which was based on an analysis of more than 800 studies asserts that simply eating 50 grams of processed meat each day can increase the risk of colon cancer by 18%. here's some food for thought. the 50 grams cited in the report is the equivalent of 1.8 oubs nces of meat. a typical deli sandwich has more than 4.5 ounces of meat. like. keep in mind that according to the report, only 34,000 of all cancer deaths could be processed meat. that's out of the 8.2 million deaths caused worldwide by kants kaenser in 2012, compared to a tobacco smoking. the panel did say red meat does have nutritional value.
