Leading prostate cancer specialist, Dr. David Samadi, discusses increased risk of pancreatic cancer with daily bacon or sausage consumption. Processed foods such as bacon and sausage contain nitrosamines that are known carcinogens. Dr. Samadi explains that consuming 2 slices of bacon or 1 link of sausage per day increases pancreatic cancer risk by 19%. Doubling that amount increases risk by 38%. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of death globally.

Dr. Samadi is Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York.

I chose to undergo the operation with a specialist in the U.S., who has an extensive experience in robotic surgeries: Dr. David Smadi. The surgery was relatively simple: i didn't suffer any pain, lost a small amount of blood and had the catheter only for seven days. I got back to full functioning very soon afterwards.

While everyone’s choice of treatment should and will be different, I know by my outcome and recovery as well as my Dad, that choosing the Samadi Team and Mount Sinai Medical Center  as my hospital choice, was the right decision.
