The recent story about how eating processed meat increases the risk of developing bowel cancer generated a great deal of press attention. From John Ross Jr’s perspective, it was significant on two levels.

Firstly, it was underpinned by a study carried out by the University of Zurich, which questioned 450,000 people from 10 European countries to record their diet over a 12-month period – so it was a pretty weighty study. The result of which highlighted how those consuming more than 160g of processed meat a day were 44% more likely to live shortened lives than those consuming 20g.

Secondly, it makes the divide between meat and fish from a health benefits perspective even greater. Of course, as a producer of Scottish smoked salmon, we’ve always been keen to push the health benefits associated with eating fish. This study just makes that argument even more compelling.

The benefits of smoked salmon are vast, but why is smoked salmon healthy? Here is a selection of reasons.
