  1. aCurrent %, current proportion of processed meat/poultry in HEP; Current amount, current level of processed meat/poultry in HEP; Reduced amount, reduced level of processed meat/poultry compared to HEP; None, no processed meat/poultry
  2. bOnly deviations beyond those present within the HEP [22] are noted here
  3. cPattern not feasible in this modeling study
