A new report from the World Health Organisation (WHO) says processed meat [causes / causing] cancer. Processed meat [including / includes] bacon, hot dogs, ham and sausages, as [well / good] as canned meat and meat-based sauces. The report was [made / making] by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). It said it was important to [told / tell] the world about the danger [for / of] processed meat because of the large [figure / number] of people who eat it and get cancer. The report says that eating [justly / just] 50g of processed meat a day increases the chance of developing certain types of cancer [by / at] 18 per cent. Fifty grams is just two slices of bacon or one sausage. The WHO also said eating red meat [carried / handled] a risk of developing cancer.

Although the WHO warned people about the risk of eating [over / too] much processed and red meat, it did say that meat had health [benefits / beneficial] . Meat has many [important / importance] vitamins and minerals. The WHO said people should cut [up / down] on the amount of processed meat they eat. People should also eat more food that [contents / contains] fibre, such as fruit and vegetables, so they have a balanced diet. The meat industry is not [happy / happiness] with some of the details [by / of] the report. It does not like the [truth / fact] that the IARC put processed meat in the same group as tobacco and alcohol. A spokesperson said processed meat is not as [harmful / harmed] as alcohol or tobacco. The North American Meat Institute said the report would unnecessarily [scary / scare] people.
