  • EATING more than 25 grams (that’s less than 1oz) of red or processed meat a day can increase the chances of bowel cancer, boffins say.

    But what does it look like on your plate when you keep to the recommended limit? Here’s our portion guide for the Easter hols — if you’re still peckish there’s always a choccy egg.

    25g portion is all you can m-eat baconPig sick… little chance of filling up on a just a single rasher of bacon salamiFeeling stick… even the extra tiny morsel of Peperami won’t be enough to fill up on this spicy favourite beefBeing bull-ied… this serving would result in a beef with the chef porkWhat a carve-up… you wouldn’t get much pork to get your teeth into sausageBanger to rights… half a sausage is too little to chew lamb cutletBaa-rmy… serving up half a lamb cutlet would end with a roasting hamS-ham… only a single slice is not enough for a sarnie for your picnic steakMis-steak… diners wouldn’t fancy having this measly amount pepperoniPepper-moany… just five pieces would barely top one slice of pizza burgerBurger off… even MaccyD’s offering would need to be trimmed How to reduce your risk of bowel cancer…

    Those risk factors may make for worrying reading – but there are ways to reduce your risk.

    Scientists actually believe that around half of all bowel cancers could be prevented by simply living a healthier lifestyle.

    Limiting the amount of red meat you eat and avoiding processed meat as much as possible could be a good place to start.

    Dr Lisa Wilde, director of research at Bowel Cancer UK, said: “Making simple changes to your lifestyle can help stack the odds against bowel cancer.

    “As well as avoiding processed foods, like bacon, ham and salami and limiting our intake of red meat, increasing our intake of wholegrains and pulses, being of a healthy weight, cutting down on alcohol, taking more exercise, and stopping smoking will make a real difference to our health in general.”

    Being active can help you maintain a healthy body weight which is another way of reducing your risk.

    Experts recommend doing at least 30 minutes of exercise, such as a brisk walk, every day.

    You should also be mindful of your calorie intake – avoid sugary snacks and drinks and be aware of portion sizes.

    THERE'S NO TIME 2 LOSE

    THE Sun’s No Time 2 Lose campaign aims to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of bowel cancer.

    And it called on the Government to lower the screening age from 60 to 50 – to bring it in line with Scotland.

    Last summer, the health secretary Matt Hancock listened and agreed to start bowel cancer screening at 50 – meaning everyone in England will get a test on their 50th birthday.

    A date for the roll out of screening at 50 has yet to be announced.

    But the move could save more than 4,500 lives a year, experts say.

    Bowel cancer is the second deadliest form of the disease, but it can be cured if it’s caught early – or better still prevented.

    Caught at stage 1 – the earliest stage – patients have a 97 per cent chance of living for five years or longer.

    But catch it at stage 4 – when it’s already spread – and that chance plummets to just seven per cent.

    Last April, Lauren Backler, whose mum died of the disease at the age of 55, joined forces with The Sun to launch the No Time 2 Lose campaign, also supported by Bowel Cancer UK.

    Lauren delivered a petition to the Department of Health complete with almost 450,000 signatures, to put pressure on the Government to change the screening age – a move that could save the NHS millions.

    She believes her mum could have been saved if screening had been available – and now campaigns to ensure others don’t lose their loved ones to this potentially curable disease.

    The recommended daily calorie intake is around 2,000 calories each day for women and 2,500 for men.

    Also consider cutting out smoking and drinking alcohol – both are linked to an increased cancer risk.

    Researchers have started to look at the effects of some medication to see if can lower the bowel cancer risk – but so far there is little evidence to support the claims.

    One of which is statins – widely used to prevent heart attacks and strokes – but some studies suggest they may play a role in preventing bowel cancer.

    Other studies have shown that people who take aspirin regularly for three years or more have a reduced risk of developing non-cancerous growths and bowel cancer.

    But aspirin may also cause side effects, such as indigestion or bleeding, and it’s not clear how safe it is to take regularly.

  • Pdvsa comenzó a pasar las facturas de sus ventas de petróleo a Rosneft, un tipo de transacción que ya estarían realizando empresa de India

    El presidente Nicolás Maduro está usando al gigante energético ruso Rosneft para canalizar el flujo de efectivo de las ventas de petróleo de Venezuela, para evadir sanciones con las que Estados Unidos busca sacarlo del poder, según fuentes y documentos revisados por Reuters.

    Las ventas son la última señal de la creciente dependencia del Gobierno de Venezuela de Rusia, en momentos en que Estados Unidos presiona financieramente a la administración de Maduro, a quien describe como un dictador.

    Bajo el sistema descubierto por Reuters, la petrolera estatal venezolana Pdvsa comenzó a pasar las facturas de sus ventas de petróleo a Rosneft.

    El gigante ruso de la energía paga a Pdvsa inmediatamente con un descuento sobre el precio de venta -evitando el plazo habitual de 30 a 90 días para completar las transacciones- y cobra el monto total más tarde al comprador, según los documentos y las fuentes.

    Desde enero, el gobierno de Maduro ha estado en conversaciones con aliados en Moscú sobre las formas de eludir la prohibición de que los clientes paguen a Pdvsa en dólares, dijeron las fuentes.

    Rusia ha dicho públicamente que las sanciones de Washington son ilegales y que trabajaría con Venezuela para evitarlas.

    “Pdvsa está entregando sus cuentas por cobrar a Rosneft”, dijo una fuente de la petrolera estatal venezolana con conocimiento de los acuerdos, quien habló bajo condición de anonimato por temor a represalias.

    Según muestran los documentos, se les ha pedido a las principales compañías energéticas, como Reliance Industries Ltd de India, -el mayor cliente que paga en efectivo de Pdvsa-, que participen en el plan pagando a Rosneft por el petróleo venezolano.

    Cuando se le consultó sobre las transacciones, un portavoz de Reliance dijo que han realizado pagos a compañías rusas y chinas por el petróleo venezolano. Agregó que los desembolsos se deducían del dinero que Venezuela debía a esos países, pero no proporcionó más detalles.

    “Estamos en un diálogo activo con el Departamento de Estado de Estados Unidos sobre nuestros tratos por petróleo venezolano para cumplir” con las sancione, destacó el portavoz.

    El petróleo representa más del 90% de las exportaciones de la nación de la OPEP y la mayor parte de los ingresos gubernamentales. Maduro ha acusado al presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, de librar una guerra económica contra Venezuela y de buscar derrocarlo.
