Kip Andersen, co-director of the film indicated that the risk of developing colorectal cancer is 18% if an individual how daily eats a  bacon portion. Red meat caused the same risk rate to 17%.

Even the proofs about the risk of cancer caused by eating meats  “The Rumor Detector” said for the Science-Presse Agency (Quebec) that’s is an exaggeration to conclude that eating is as harmful to health as smoking cigarettes.

WHO (World Health Organization) and IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer), have classified red meat as a “Probable carcinogens”.

Red meat consumption has not yet been established as a cancer’cause but, red meat diets could be responsible for 50,000 cancer deaths per year worldwide that’s contrast with:
