From Foodbeast:

Consuming less bacon and alcohol could reduce your risk of cancer by up to 40 percent, according to the results of a major new study.

The research is a product of the World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) and it studied the health of over 51 million people. The same report released recently says that being overweight will soon surpass smoking as the biggest risk factor when it comes to cancer. The experts from the WCRF say that, if you want to minimize that risk, you should be having just moderate amounts of red meat and not too much alcohol.

WCRF updated their guidelines for protecting yourself from cancer after a decade and has unveiled a 10-point plan to help combat the disease. Even small amounts of red or processed meat and alcohol increase the risk of cancer.
