A study by the journal BMC medicine found eating large amounts of processed meat can contribute to an early death.

The research involving half a million people highlighted links between heart disease and cancer and processed meats like sausage and bacon.

The study found high consumption of processed meat led to a 72-percent increased risk of dying from heart disease and an eleven-percent increased risk of dying from cancer.

The research found diets high in processed meat were linked to unhealthy lifestyles. As always, experts said moderation was the key.
