At the other end of the age spectrum, in some countries, the older you get, the more likely it is you won't die in that particular year as there is such a high likely hood that you will die in childhood.
This only applies up to late childhood in a few really poor countries.

There are also many incorrect graphs going around showing dramatic decrease in mortality at older ages. From what I can tell that's because they've done the very basic mistake of plotting absolute numbers of deaths - and of course there simply aren't as many older people available to die.

The best graph I've found is the one right at the end of this page:

https://www.ssa.gov/oact/NOTES/as120...bles_Body.html

The SLOPE of the graph is the annual mortality - it basically stays fairly level until around 60, then increases significantly, and then slows down again around 100 although that's most likely due to lack of data.

It really nicely shows the dramatic change in childhood mortality, and the gradually decreasing gains overall.

Sadly it doen't have a plot with and without bacon.

Thanks to the IARC, orthorexics the world over have yet another foodstuff about which they can get their knickers in a twist.

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

Back to the original point ..

I bought some of the non lethal bacon today and a few other meats from the mouth watering selection at Jims in Gland.

It was fantastic, i forced myself to only cook half the pack for lunch. Great flavour, cooks well, minimal shrinkage and no added water to spoil it. It's not cheap stuff but worth it for a treat.


And I didn't die either .. So bonus.

Re: Will my bacon kill you?

We all love to hate the DailyMail yeah .. But they have now published the list of horrible dangerous things which bacon now joins .. As decided by the WHO.

So as a threat to life, bacon is now in the same league as 116 other things .. Including :

22. Alcoholic beverages
93. Outdoor air pollution
106. Solar radiation
11. Furniture and cabinet making
29. Diesel exhaust
17. Occupational exposure as a painter
7. Chimney sweeping


In other words .. What a complete load of phuking shyte.

I believe he's saying the science is sound, it's how people, especially the media, interpret it.
As I understand it, the IARC classification is based on hazard analyses; they are not saying these things cause cancer, but exposure to them significantly increases your risk of contracting cancer at some stage.
I drink (a lot), I smoke (a little), I eat processed meat and I go outside in the sun. Does that mean I will definitely get cancer later in life? Absolutely not, but it probably increases my risk of doing so.

what is missing is by what proportion does your risk increase when exposed to these elements. Maybe cigarettes increases by 25% the risk of having a lung cancer whereas bacon increases by 8% your risk of colorectal cancer.

I'm going to give up sweeping chimneys, cabinet making, painting houses for a living and inhaling diesel exhaust fumes. That should allow me to eat a few more bacon sarnies before I pop my clogs.

Everything causes cancer and not doing anything causes pronounced dead.


Its a choice you have to make.

Water does not significantly increase your cancer risk; doesn't mean that too much of it won't kill you though.

When making your fry-up do however remember to take the healthy option and cook everything in butter or lard.
