Bacon can kill: Official

Re: Risk assessment...

In other words, if you take 1000 people who eat a bacon sarnie every day and 1000 who don't, 947 of the porkies won't get bum cancer, while 955 of the porkless won't get bum cancer. Most people won't get bum cancer, but an extra seven in the porky group do. So your odds of giving yourself bum cancer through eating bacon is 947:7, or 135:1

I think I'll carry on with my weekly fry up.

(But wait until,,, what about binge porking?)
