The analysis of 800 studies from around the world by the International Agency for Research on Cancer – IARC – found “sufficient evidence in humans that the consumption of processed meat causes colorectal cancer”.

In a new study undertaken by the University of Adelaide, researchers have found men who smoke are less likely to need hip and knee replacements as they get older. While smoking is linked to a plethora of serious health problems, the study found long-term male smokers were less vulnerable to osteoarthritis. Researchers studied the health records of 11,000 men aged between 65 and 83. The researchers found men who had smoked for more than 48 years were 51 per cent less likely to have total joint replacements such as hip or knee than men who had never smoked. Principal investigator Professor Philip Ryan and PhD student George Mnatzaganian said the findings do not endorse smoking as it is linked to a range of serious diseases which cause premature death.
