Processed meat gives you cancer - level 2
The World Health Organisation announced that processed meat can cause cancer. Experts found that eating 50 grams of processed meat increases the risk of bowel cancer by 18 per cent. Fifty grams is less than two slices of bacon.
The organisation also found that red meat is probably carcinogenic, too. It tells people to re-think eating meat. While some people may stop eating meat, others do not believe this.
Difficult words: announce (to say something officially), processed (made by people), bowel (the system of tubes where food goes after leaving the stomach), carcinogenic (causing cancer).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
