Study debunks link between meat, breast cancer

According to a recent study by the National Institutes of Health and the American Association of Retired Persons, there is no link between eating meat and developing breast cancer. The study was published in the International Journal of Cancer.

It followed 120,755 post-menopausal women who provided information about what they ate in 1995 and 1996, when the research took place. The study also included detailed information about how the women prepared the meat. Over the next eight years, about three percent of the women developed breast cancer. The researchers concluded that their findings “do not support the hypothesis that a high intake of meat, red meat, processed meat, meat cooked at high temperatures… is associated with increased risk of breast cancer.”
