Eating hot dogs, bacon and other processed meat can cause colorectal cancer and eating red meat probably can cause cancer, the World Health Organization’s cancer agency reported Monday.

A study in The New England Journal of Medicine also found that emergency room visits for supplements occurred frequently among young adults.
One in every three people born this year in the UK will eventually develop dementia, according to stark new research revealing the scale of what has been described as the country’s “greatest medical challenge”.
Workplaces can be highly segregated environments – with the majority of primary school teachers being female, for example, while chemistry professors tend to be male.
A new study–one of the largest and longest in duration of its kind–finds that taking omega-3 supplements did not slow cognitive decline among 4,000 participants.
