Posted by: Research 13 January 2012

Researchers in Sweden from the Karolinksa Instituet and Swedish Cancer Foundation have suggested a link between pancreatic cancer and the consumption of processed meat, such as bacon and sausages.

Alex Ford, Chief Executive of Pancreatic Cancer UK said

"Pancreatic Cancer UK is keen to see more research like this that helps improve our understanding about which aspects of diet and lifestyle may have a bearing on the risk of developing pancreatic cancer.

These findings, if confirmed by further studies, could help inform people on which lifestyle factors could play a role in limiting their chances of developing the disease."
