A survey of 2,000 Britons found more than 25 per cent of people aged between 18 and 24 no longer include bacon in their full English breakfast. It is believed that this is because they are becoming increasingly health-conscious.
This is in the light of a report by the World Health Organisation which highlighted the link between processed meats and an increased risk of cancer. It seems that sales of that morning rasher have dropped by 17%. Young people are also replacing their fried egg with a scrambled one in order to reduce their fat intake.
While the health concerns will clearly play a major part in the decisions of what to eat, here at TheField we think there is another major factor here.

We know that in the office here we can never, ever look at Pigs-In-Blankets again.
