    No, don't 'stop' just be sensible and don't have one every day, shirley?

    Yet another enjoyable thing that is apparently going to kill us.

    Fried breakfasts are OK, as long as they don't contain bacon or sausages

    and are fried in real fat or oil, not trans-fatty polyunsaturated industrial muck.

    The study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, analysed data from 11 trials and 6,643 patients with pancreatic cancer.

    It found that eating processed meat increased the risk of pancreatic cancer. The risk increased by 19% for every 50g someone added to their daily diet. Having an extra 100g would increase the risk by 38%.

    Prof Larsson [who conducted the study] said: "Pancreatic cancer has poor survival rates. So as well as diagnosing it early, it's important to understand what can increase the risk of this disease."

    She recommended that people eat less red meat.
    Now there's a thing. Did she really recommend less red meat, when the study showed the risk of eating processed meat? Why would she say that? Perhaps the BBC article missed out some important connection there.

    That's the trouble with getting you news from journalists - most of them don't know squat, and don't have the time or the inclination to tell the whole story.

    The onion gravy helps too.
    Not sure that's so, you see, liver absolutely has to be served in thick gravy with sliced up fried onions and smoked bacon. It's the law!

    You'll probably find that those studied who do eat sausages and bacon everyday are fat, and it's actually being fat that increases your risk of cancer.
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    That's true but this study shows a link between processed meats specifically, and pancreatic cancer specifically.

    It's probably the nitrites in the curing. So eat fried kidneys and/or fish for breakfast instead. Or steak and eggs.

    Being fat, or having high levels of fat in your diet, increases your chances of pancraetitis which increases your chances of pancreatic cancer. So does smoking and binge drinking.

    The nitrites in processed / cured meats have been linked to a lot of stuff as well, and the link between red and processed meats and bowel cancer seems solid.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    These types of reports pisses me off. This report has been made by a cancer charity. Charities publish wacky un-scientific motive reports purely in order to increase public awareness of their charity and to increase revenues. It is all about money for the well paid directors or chartable companies. The BBC employ dumb out of uni media studies idiots who fall for these reports and give them free publicity.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    To improve my chances of not getting cancer I have stopped reading news
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius
