Bacon can kill: Official

Re: Risk assessment...

Also, 50g a day... I eat plenty of bacon, salami, ham etc and even then it's probably still less than 50g/day.

It's surprising how small a 50g portion is. Looking in the fridge, three slices of liver sausage, two slices of peppered beef or thick-cut ham is 50g and one can easily shift that in just a couple rounds of sandwiches.

I have decided to look at things the other way round; not so much how bad bacon is, but how much better off I would be if I stopped eating processed meats. I don't see evidence of any massive benefits. And something is going to kill me sooner or later.
