116 things that can cause cancer

In recent days in public as turbulent attitude echoed the World Health Organization on the carcinogenic red meat, bacon and sausage. According to experts, only 50 grams of processed meat per day, which is less than one sausage, increase the risk of colon cancer by as much as 18 percent. Substances which are added during processing may cause cancer, and this includes preservatives such as nitrates and nitrites, significant amounts of salt and drying with smoke. Unprocessed red meat as potentially carcinogenic, but for this there is still no sufficient evidence.

- For those who consume moderate amounts of meat products, the risk of getting cancer is small, but it increases with an increased the amount of the intake of processed meat - said dr. Kurt Straif from WHO.

Consequently, the World Health Organization revealed a list of 116 things that can cause cancer. On it are all already known culprits such as tobacco smoke, passive smoking and alcohol, but also some that are impossible to avoid, including the air we breathe.
