    It overwhelmingly does harm yeah. I wouldn't suggest anyone start smoking just to ward off ulcerative colitis lol

    On balance being over all harmful, and being only harmful aren't the same thing though

    This actually interfered with my breakfast the other day, and now I've decided I wish I hadn't seen this story :'(

    I switched the grill on to make sausages and then switched it back off, sigh.

    They were talking about smoking. Smoking is protective against ulcerative colitis.

    Unless you are eating these, I wouldn't be too worried.

    If you are eating decent sausages such The Black Farmer's (don't take that the wrong way) they are not processed other than the meat being minced and put in sausage casings.
