However, before you turn your nose up at that ham butty, it’s worth noting the comments of Kurt Straif, head of the monographs programme at WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), which made the declaration: ‘For an individual, the risk of developing colorectal cancer because of their consumption of processed meat remains small, but this risk increases with the amount of meat consumed. In view of the large number of people who consume processed meat, the global impact on cancer incidence is of public-health importance.’ It sounds more like pointless scaremongering to me.
