Meat Cancer Risk

British researchers find that a diet high in meat may put women at a higher risk for cancer and heart disease.

A new study conducted by UK scientists at the University of Brighton in East Sussex concludes girls who eat a diet high in meat are more likely to begin puberty at a younger age, placing them at a higher risk for cancer. Researchers found that 49 percent of girls eating more than 12 servings of meat per week at the age of seven would begin menstruation by 12 and a half years of age. Previous scientific studies have shown that girls who begin menstruating in early adolescence are at greater risk for developing diseases including ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and heart disease.
