Scientists are allowed include processed meat in small quantities

Nutritionists for a long time are advised not to eat processed meat products, explaining that they increase the risk of developing heart disease and cancer. According to European scientists, the use of more than twenty grams of processed meat per day increases the risk of premature death.

Professor, University of Zurich Sabine Rohrmann believes that about three percent of premature deaths could be prevented if people ate less than twenty grams of meat products per day.

As Professor Tom Sanders from king's College London with colleagues disagree. According to him, all conclusions are based on assumptions and not on the specific facts of the deaths. He noted that the risk of death increased by 72 percent only if you eat it every day more than 160 grams of meat products. Thus, if there are not abused, you will not have problems.
