18% per 50 grams ?

So let me see. At an average of 200g/day for, let's say 360 days/year starting at (simplify) age 10, now age 49.

39 * 360 * 4 * 18 = 1,010,880 % chance increase of bowel cancer.

And if you consider the equation this way :

39 * 360 * 4 * 0.18 = 10,108.8 %

Something tells me this study is baloney.
