London: Regularly tucking into sausages, bacon, ready meals and pies dramatically increases the chances of developing heart disease and cancer, a new study has warned.People who live on processed meat increase their risk of dying by 44 percent.Experts said that three percent of early deaths could be prevented each year if people ate under 20 grams of processed meat a day - less than a single rasher of bacon.But there was good news for those who enjoy a steak or a Sunday roast. A small amount of red meat such as beef, pork or lamb could be beneficial as an important source of vitamins and nutrients.The research by the University of Zurich, one of the largest studies of its kind, involved half a million men and women aged 35 to 70 with widely ranging diets from 10 European countries.They filled in questionnaires about the food they had eaten over the previous 12 months with meats grouped into red, white and processed.
