BELLEVILLE – The World Health Organization [3] announced Monday that red and processed meats pose a cancer risk.

The organization has put these meats in the same health-risk category as cigarettes.

A study from the International Agency for Research on Cancer [4]says that people whose diets contain a lot of red and processed meat are more likely to get colon cancers.
