Processed meat such as bacon and burgers could be more unsafe than other forms of red meat, it has been claimed.
The researchers used Cox-regression models to estimate adjusted hazard ratios for CRC by dietary factors in the U.K. Biobank study, which included men and women aged 40 to 69years at recruitment between 2006 and 2010.
A study part-funded by Cancer Research UK found people who stick to government guidelines on how much red and processed meat they eat still increase their risk of bowel cancer compared with those who eat very small amounts.
The study, published Wednesday in the British medical journal International Journal of Epidemiology, found that people eating three rashers of bacon a day rather than just one could increase the risk of bowel cancer by 20 percent.
According to Emma Shields, information manager at CRUK, "This study shows the more meat you eat, the higher your risk of getting cancer and obviously the reverse is true - the less you eat the less likely you are to get bowel cancer". "But most previous research looked at people in the 1990s or earlier, and diets have changed significantly since then".
There was some good news however, with those people having a high intake of fibre from bread and breakfast cereals lowering their risk of bowel cancer by 14 per cent. They were followed over five years, and in that time 2,609 developed bowel cancer.

In the United States it is the third most common cancer, excluding skin cancers, and around 51,020 deaths are expected to occur due to colorectal cancer in 2019, according to the American Cancer Society.
Those who ate around 76 grams of red and processed meat a day still had a 20 per cent higher chance of developing bowel cancer than those who only ate about 21 grams a day, the study found.
"There's substantial evidence linking red and processed meat to bowel cancer, and the World Health Organization classifies processed meat as carcinogenic and red meat as probably carcinogenic", says Dr Bradbury.
"Although breaking habits we've had for a long time can be hard, it's never too late to make healthy changes to our diet".
New Zealand Eating and Activity Guidelines for cooked red meat: less than 500g per week (which works out at 71.4g on average per day); limit your intake of processed meats, such as luncheon, salami, ham, bacon and sausage.
