Red Meat Consumption Linked to Bladder Cancer

A new study shows a connection between the proteins and iron found in red meat and development of bladder cancer.

A recent study from the University of Southern California revealed a connection between red meat consumption and increased risk of developing bladder cancer. Catsburg’s study suggests that when red meat is consumed, two properties of the meat form carcinogenic N-nitroso compounds, which contribute to a heightened risk of developing bladder cancer. Furthermore, certain individuals that have difficulties reversing N-nitroso compounds due to genetics are at an even greater risk for developing cancer. “Individuals at risk for bladder cancer may wish to avoid intake of red and processed meats,” Catsburg says.
