2- Red and processed meats
According to the Belgian Cancer Foundation, red and processed meats should be avoided because they are mainly associated with colorectal cancer. Beef, pork, deli meats, red meat variants are all of the concern because of their compounds that could promote a carcinogenic risk. Indeed, the foundation explains that the latter can be developed through different cooking methods, although the process itself is still misunderstood, as explained by the WHO. According to this organization, the risks of cancer development are highly dependent on the quantities consumed and should, therefore, be investigated further.
