Red Meat Responsible For Brest Cancer in Later Stage of Life

Red Meat Responsible For Brest Cancer in Later Stage of Life

A recent study published in the latest edition of the British Medical Journal states that risk of breast cancer increases when a woman eats a lot of red meat during the early years of life.

Researchers who took up the study stated that meat eating has always been a topic of much debate and controversy among the dieticians and nutritionists all over the world. While some people are in full support of meat eating, others consider it to be detrimental for health.

For this latest study, data was undertaken from the British Medical Journal that consisted information of 80,000 premenopausal women. These women took part in the nurse's health study II. All these women were aged between 36 and 45 in the year 1991 when the study was conducted. They were made to fill up questionnaire that contained inquiries on their diet habits.

The results that were generated after going through all the questioners were that women who were into the habit of eating red meat frequently increased their risk of developing breast cancer by almost 22%, whereas women who did not consume meat and had legumes, nuts and poultry instead reduced their risk for developing breast cancer by 17% overall.

An earlier research that was done much before this latest study had something else to conclude. It stated that there was no link between red meat eating and breast cancer. This old study unlike this new study was done on older women only.

The new study as mentioned above concludes that red meat has a role to play in breast cancer development and so replacing it with low fatty proteins or vegetable proteins may prove to be very fruitful in reducing the risk for development of breast cancer in later stage of life.
