A new study shows a link between processed meat and pancreatic cancer. The study from the British Journal of Cancer says for every 50 gram serving you have per day, your risk goes up 19 percent.

Doctors add there are other risks for pancreatic cancer, such as smoking, diabetes and obesity. Also, the overall risk for pancreatic cancer is very low - just over one percent over your lifetime.
