The findings do seem to cozy up with a couple agendas we've been made aware of.
Don't eat bacon? Good, more for me.
World's oldest woman, 116, eats bacon daily

They fail to take into account that people who generally eat these meats on a regular basis don't live the healthiest of life styles either.
It's like saying people who drink alcohol will have a higher risk of liver disease or fatty liver. But what they don't tell you is that those people are extremely unhealthy or drink in large amounts.
Studies like this make me cringe, they also mention pan frying or grilling meat ups the percentage of chance. Last time I checked we have been eating and cooking red meats for thousands of years.
It's processed meats we need to cut back on, not steaks.

I find it strange that suddenly this information about processed meats, particularly pork based meats is carcinogenic has just hit the headlines. My point is this, is this a way for the government to rid the West of Pork based meats to appease the immigrants without causing an uproar within the existing countries?
A 2005 University of Hawaii study found that processed meats increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67 percent. Another study revealed that every 50 grams of processed meat consumed daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 50 percent. These are alarming numbers. Note that these cancer risks do not come from eating fresh, non-processed meats. They only appear in people who regularly consume processed meat products containing sodium nitrite.

Ok so i recently came across this article, which outlines the health risks associated with eating red and processed meats.
Nearly all U.S. dollar bills in circulation have traces of a toxic chemical on them, a shock study had found.
Some 95 per cent of the notes tested positive for BPA, which can disrupt hormones and has been been linked to cancer.
Larger amounts were also routinely found on receipts and exposure took place even if they were handled for just a few seconds.
The finding turns on its head the long-held idea that food packaging is the main source of of BPA infection.
So prevalent is the chemical in currency that it is now impossible to avoid it, the Washington Toxics Coalition found.
BPA, or bisphenol A, has long been used to make the plastics that are used as a liner in nearly all canned food and beverages, despite growing concerns over its impact on health.
