A must Read - The 116 things that cause CANCER - W. H. O experts

The International Agency for Research on Cancer, which is the World Health Organization's source for information about cancer, has released the definitive list of 116 things that can trigger the disease.

There is good news for carnivores as the IARC was keen to point out although processed meat may be in the same category as tobacco, it is by no meas as dangerous.

The spokeswoman said: "Processed meat has been classified in the same category as causes of cancer such as tobacco smoking and asbestos (IARC Group 1,carcinogenic to humans), but this does not mean that they are all equally dangerous.

"The IARC classifications describe the strength of the scientific evidence about an agent being a cause of cancer, rather than assessing the level of risk."

The obvious ones are all there, including smoking, sun beds, asbestos and alcohol.

Some of these risk factors, like wood dust, paint fumes and coal tar pitch are limited to people working in trades such as furniture making and roofing.
