The link between diet and cancer is complex and inconclusive, but certain foods have been shown to definitely raise your risk.
Many studies have shown that eating lots of red and processed meat increases the risk of bowel cancer.
According to Cancer Research UK, it is estimated that around 13 out of 100 bowel cancer cases (around 13 percent) in the UK are linked to eating these meats.
Processed meat is any meat that has been treated to preserve it or add flavour – for example, bacon, salami, sausages, canned meat, or chicken nuggets.
