Click on this link https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/17/health/colorectal-cancer-risk-red-processed-meat-study-intl/index.html to read "Eating just one slice of bacon a day linked to higher risk of colorectal cancer" by Nina Avramova in its entirety.

People who ate 76 grams of red and processed meat per day -- that's in line with current guidelines and roughly the same as a quarter-pound beef burger  -- had a 20% higher chance of developing colorectal cancer compared to others 

The study also found that processed meat, like sausages or bacon, posed a bigger risk than red meat, with the risk of colorectal cancer rising 20% with every 25 grams of processed meat (roughly equivalent to a thin slice of bacon) people ate per day 

Our results strongly suggest that people who eat red and processed meat four or more times a week have a higher risk of developing bowel cancer than those who eat red and processed meat less than twice a week

The World Health Organization concluded in 2015 that there is enough evidence to classify processed meat as "carcinogenic to humans," wrote the study's authors.
