Men who ate roughly 2.6 ounces a day — the equivalent of 2 or 3 slices of ham — of processed red meats had a 28 percent higher risk of heart failure and more than twice the risk of death from heart failure compared with men who ate less than one ounce of processed meat daily, the researchers found.
