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.

In March of 2006 I had robotic prostate surgery and was released from the hospital in 24 hours and had the catheter removed in 5 days. My PSA values have been below the detectable range for the entire year. At your hands it is the most painless and least invasive operation that a man can ever have.
