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.
