A new study suggests there's a link between processed meat and pancreatic cancer.
Swedish researchers found that people who eat at least one serving of processed meat daily, like a sausage or bacon, increase the risk of getting pancreatic cancer by almost 20 percent.
Some scientists think this is because of the nitrates in processed meat.
