The American breakfast phenomenon has taken a rough stab in the grease after The WHO determined that bacon causes cancer.
Many Americans eat not just bacon, but a huge consumption of red meat in general, which is becoming an issue in the states.
The survey concluded that eating about 1.8 ounces of processed meat daily will increase the risk of colorectal cancer by about 18 percent.
A Q and A recently took place with the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and they did admit that meat does have known health benefits. However, their research shows that heavy meat eaters are at higher risk of cancer than the next person.
Despite these findings, the agency says there was not enough data collected
"to reach a conclusion about whether the way meat is cooked affects the risk of cancer."
Many dietitians and health experts suggest a healthy consumption of meat, but it's more important to focus on consuming more fruits and vegetables they say.
"Scientific evidence shows cancer is a complex disease not caused by single foods and that a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle choices are essential to good health," writes Barry Carpenter, president of the North American Meat Institute.
Carpenter demonstrates the other side of the issue, in which he states that cancer is more complex than a single cause.
Many people will side with Carpenter on this issue because cancer is caused not just by eating bacon every once in a while, it's simply about making important lifestyle choices.
