World Health Organization: Bacon and Sausage Cause Cancer [VIDEO]

A WHO study released Monday categorizes processed meats like sausage and bacon as β€œcarcinogenic to humans,” along with asbestos and smoking. The study adds that red meat likely causes cancer, too. Though the 22-member panel behind the study was not unanimous, the research has raised alarms in the beef industry, which takes in some $95 billion a year. β€œWe simply don’t think the evidence support any causal link between any red meat and any type of cancer,” a spokesman said.
