Breast Cancer and Meat Consumption

By May 21, 2019 News

A recent study published in the European Journal of Cancer by a group of investigators from Glasgow, Scotland, described over 260,000 women ages 40-69 years, who were queried about their consumption of red and processed meats, and were followed for an average of 7 years to see if their diet affected the incidence of breast cancer.
Among women with the highest level of consumption of processed meats, there was a significant increase in the incidence of breast cancer, which reflected the results found in 10 similar prior studies enrolling 1.65 million women. This association was seen in post-menopausal women only.
There was no association of red meat consumption and breast cancer.
So hold the cold cuts, but go ahead and dive into that steak.
