New Study: Red Meat May Be Linked to Breast Cancer

Research published earlier this week in the British Medical Journal shows that eating red meat during early adulthood may increase breast cancer incidence.

A recent study conducted by scientists at Harvard University reveals that red meat consumption may be linked to the development of breast cancer. During the study, the HU researchers analyzed survey data that was collected in 1991 from more than 88,000 women who were between the ages of 26 and 45 years old. The results, which were published in the British Medical Journal, showed that higher rates of red meat consumption during early adulthood can increase the chances of developing breast cancer by 22 percent. The researchers recommended that people reduce their red meat intake and indulge in a diet that’s rich with plant-based foods, including protein sources such as nuts and legumes.
