The processed meat increases risk of development of a cancer of a pancreasThe use in day of superfluous 50 grammes of the processed meat increases risk of a cancer of a pancreas for 19 %

The Swedish scientists have declared communication between the use of the meat subjected to processing, for example, bacon or sausages, and development of a cancer of a pancreas.

According to researches, consumption in day of superfluous 50 grammes of meat products increases risk of a disease for 19 %. Superfluous 100 grammes of such products a day increase risk by 38 %.

"It is known that the use in food of meat increases risk of a cancer of a thick gut, but on development of other forms of a cancer there is not a lot of data on influence of meat", - professor Susan Larsson directing research at Royal institute of Sweden has declared in BBC interview.

According to her, the high death rate from a cancer of a pancreas is connected with what to diagnose a disease at an early stage very difficult.

For this reason, professor Larsson speaks, it is important to understand, what factors increase risk of a disease.

During the research which results are published in British Journal of Cancer, data on 11 experiences and 6643 patients with a cancer of a pancreas have been analysed.

Risk factor

The British charity foundation Cancer Research UK notes that the risk of development of a cancer of a pancreas is rather low. So, during life with it one of 77 men, or one of 79 women can fall ill.

"Scientists try to establish, whether is meat indispensable risk factor of a disease a cancer of a pancreas, and additional researches are necessary to confirm it, - the representative of Cancer Research UK Sar Hiom speaks. - However the latest scientific works show that meat products can play in it a certain role".

Hiom emphasises that the greatest risk factor there is a smoking.

The world fund of researches of a cancer (VFIR) recommends to refuse meat products completely.

"There are certificates of that the excessive weight or obesity increase risk of a disease a cancer of a pancreas. The research carried out by the Swedish scientists can indicate additional risk factor", - the deputy head of fund on a science doctor Rachael Thomson has declared.

As has noted Thomson, in 2012 of VFIR will carry out separate researches to recheck the factors influencing cancer cases of a pancreas.

At the same time, in fund say that are sure that there is an accurate communication between the use of meat of animals and the processed meat and development of a cancer of intestines.

"Therefore our organisation recommends not to use more than 500 grammes of ready red meat a week and completely to refuse the processed meat", - has declared Thomson.

The British government in 2011 recommended not to consume more than 70 grammes of these products a day.
