The World Health Organisation has some news. It says that processed meat gives you cancer.

If you eat 50 grams of processed meat, there is an 18% chance that you will get cancer. Fifty grams is not much. It is less than two pieces of bacon.

The World Health Organisation says that red meat probably gives you cancer, too. The World Health Organisation says that people should think about what they eat.

Difficult words: health (the situation of the body; how fit you are), processed (made by people), cancer (a very bad disease/illness that can kill you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
