Meat warning

Processed red meat products - such as bacon, sausages and ham - have now been scientifically proven to increase the risk of developing bowel cancer, the second most lethal form of the disease in the UK after lung cancer.

Yet, despite this fact being acknowledged by the World Health Organisation, the World Cancer Research Fund and even the UK’s Department of Health, little has been done to warn the public of the danger.

Animal Aid is launching a new campaign to help protect people from these carcinogenic products, and also - of course - to protect animals from slaughter.

Anyone who would like to find out more about the link between processed red meat and bowel cancer or would like information on going meat-free should contact Animal Aid on 01732 364546 or email
