Why red meat is danger to health

Published 27/09/2013

PROCESSED red meat products, such as bacon, sausages and ham, have now been scientifically proven to increase the risk of developing bowel cancer – the second most lethal form of the disease after lung cancer.

Yet little has been done to warn the public of the danger.

That is why Animal Aid is launching a new campaign to help protect people from these carcinogenic products and to protect animals from slaughter.
