Back off the bacon! A new study links the popular pork product with a deadly disease.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

Americans love bacon, but a new study claims that eating just two crispy slices a day can increase the risk of developing pancreatic cancer by almost a fifth.

Researchers from Karolinska Institute in Sweden found that eating just under two ounces of processed meat a day can up the risk of the disease by 19%.

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly, with only a 5% survival rate.
