If you’ve been swayed by recent reports that red and processed meat isn’t harmful to your health, put down that bacon — there’s bad news.

New analysis of long term data on nearly 30,000 people found a small but significant risk of death from any cause tied to eating two servings of processed meat or unprocessed red meat each week.

Similar risks for cardiovascular disease were found for those eating two servings a week of processed meat, unprocessed red meat or poultry — although that last category might be due to frying or the consumption of skin, researchers said.
