Cured Meat Linked to Lung Disease

A new study found that eating cured meats is associated with an increased risk for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The study involved 42,915 men participating in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study and their consumption of cured meat products (bacon, hot dogs, and other processed meats) was analyzed.

Those men consuming cured meats daily had more than two and half times the risk for COPD compared with those consuming these products rarely or never.
