Recommended Posts

Researchers in Sweden from the Karolinksa Instituet and Swedish Cancer Foundation have suggested a link between pancreatic cancer and the consumption of processed meat, such as bacon and sausages.

Alex Ford, Chief Executive of Pancreatic Cancer UK said:

"Pancreatic Cancer UK is keen to see more research like this that helps improve our understanding about which aspects of diet and lifestyle may have a bearing on the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

These findings, if confirmed by further studies, could help inform people on which lifestyle factors could play a role in limiting their chances of developing the disease."
