Mmm... BBQ season. Sausages, hot dogs… anyone like bacon? Eat a lot of lunch meat?
Can there be life without bacon?
Colon and rectal cancer are currently the 2nd most common, unpleasant, and deadliest cancers in Canada. Risk factors for developing it include family history, presence of polyps, IBD, smoking, alcohol, lack of physical activity, obesity, and….. dum dum dum… a diet high in red or processed meat!!!
Processed meat is not required or even beneficial. Think of it like candy. It is not a part of a healthy balanced diet and it certainly should not be a regular on the daily menu!
