More Bacon Bad News

I learned back in 2016 that bacon is not good for fibromyalgia. That was very sad. Now I have learned that bacon, or other processed meats like sausage, can increase your risk of getting breast cancer significantly.

"From an analysis of more than 260,000 women, researchers found that the risk of breast cancer increased by more than a fifth for those who consumed more than 9 grams of processed meats per day, which is the equivalent of around two sausages per week.

However, the team found no link between red meat intake and the risk of breast cancer."

Well that's good news about red meat. But I would rather have bacon than red meat most of the time. And two sausages or three pieces of bacon is all it takes to increase your risk. 

I am mostly unhappy that yes I can get cancer twice and still have to quit eating some of my favorite foods to help prevent another diagnosis. That's not fair.
