In brief: Processed red meat

Evidences have indicated increase risk for colorectal cancer that is associated with consumption of processed red meat.
A recent metaanalysis published - showed a potential link between eating red and processed meats and the development of pacreatic cancer as well. However, an epidemiologic study like this cannot exclude other cancer risk factors i.E obesity etc. More fruits/vegetable is recommended.

In brief: Saturated fat, prese

Intake of saturated fats and food preservatives are associated with increased incidence of cancers.
It is difficult to blame sausages specifically.

In brief: Nonspecific.

No specific link, but a diet high in animal fat, and smoked foods can lead to colorectal and gastric cancer.
