A new study by the British Journal of Cancer has learned that eating processed meats, like bacon or sausage, may increase one’s risk of developing pancreatic cancer.
The study brought together 11 other studies and involved 6,643 people with pancreatic cancer. The data revealed that there was an elevated risk of the cancer when the patient ate processed meats.
According to the study, a persons risk of pancreatic cancer increased by 19 percent for every 50 grams of processed meat they added to their diet. 50 grams can be roughly a few slices of ham or salami, one hot dog, or two strips of bacon.
The reason that this type of food can induce pancreatic cancer is because of preservatives found in some processed meat products. The preservatives are nitrates and possibly N-nitroso compounds-potent carcinogens.
Medical specialists are advising people to lower their daily intake of processed meats.
The future of laptops was unveiled by Intel at the Consumer Electronics show held in Las Vegas last week.
Intel revealed it’s grand plan to make Ultrabooks, a thin and light laptop similar to MacBook Air’s. This year there will be more than 75 different Ultrabook models on the market, and are expected to replace old Windows laptops in the next couple of years.
The inspiration for Ultrabook PCs is obviously Apple’s MacBook Air, but this new development in laptops has been a long time coming for PC’s.
The thing about Ultrabooks is that they’ll only weight around 3 pounds, have solid-state drives, and have better Core processors that will even be capable of 3D graphics. The solid-state drives will make the laptops faster, with a startup time under 10 seconds and instant resume from standby speeds.
The main difference between Apple’s MacBook Air and PC’s Ultrabooks is that the PC version will be relatively cheaper. Apple’s 11-inch MacBook Air is around $999, while the 13-inch is roughly $1,2999. 13-inch Ultrabooks will run under $1,000.
Ultrabooks will be useful for students and professionals who often carry their computer around all day. The fact that they are so light will completely erase the need for a tablet. PC makers are also working to have touchscreen capabilities and voice and motion controls in future models, making tablets even more obsolete.
