A WHO report says processed and red meat cause cancer. It said the world should know about the dangers of bacon, hot dogs, ham and sausages. Many people eat these and get cancer. Just 50g of processed meat a day can increase the risk of cancer by 18 per cent. That's just two slices of bacon or one sausage.

The WHO also said meat had health benefits. It has many vitamins. People should eat less processed meat and more fruit and vegetables. People need a balanced diet. The meat industry said processed meat is not as harmful as alcohol or tobacco. It said the report will scare people.
