Bowel cancer symptoms: ‘Pencil’ poo could be a warning sign – what to look out for


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 and/or add flavour – for example, bacon, salami, sausages, canned meat, or chicken nuggets. And a portion is about two sausages or three slices of ham.

The Government recommends that people eating more than 90 grams of red and processed meat a day should reduce it to 70 grams or less.
