Since being linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer of the pancreas, red meat has been found by a team of US researchers to be a possible cause of bladder cancer.
A new study suggests that consuming specific compounds in meat related to processing methods may be associated with an increased risk of developing bladder cancer.
Scientists are reporting evidence that certain ingredients in shampoo, detergents and other household cleaning agents may be a source of precursor materials for formation of a suspected cancer-causing contaminant in water supplies that receive water from sewage treatment plants.
