Could the food you eat shorten your life span?

BOSTON (WHDH) — The processed meats in your sandwich could be making your life shorter.

A new study shows eating too much processed meat is linked to major health problems.

Researchrese said a slice of bacon, half a hot dog or a single slice of ham is about as little processed meat you can safely eat a day. Any more, they said, increases your risk of heart disease and cancer.
