This food item can increase the risk of Breast Cancer

The number of breast cancer victims is on the rise. A lot of factors contribute to it but the most important one perhaps from the lot is the modern lifestyle. The lack of exercise and a messed up diet can lead one to the disease and a recent study suggests the same.

According to the International Journal of Cancer, it was found that processed meat has a direct impact on breast cancer. Consumption of the food item can increase the risk of cancer by 9%.

Earlier, processed meat was linked with many other cancers but the new study concludes that it contributes to the development of breast cancer as well.
