Capitalize, Bold, Underline: Eating Red Meat Increases Cancer Risk 40%

He found that people who consumed about one serving of red meat (beef, pork or lamb) per day had a 13 percent increased risk of mortality, compared with those who were eating very little meat. And processed meats raised the risk higher, to about a 20 percent increased risk of death from diseases including cancer and heart disease.

…[two servings of red meat daily] is associated with approximately 40 percent increased risk of colorectal cancer and, as this study shows, about a 30 percent increased risk of death.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for some evidence against that claim, we can turn to the meat industry:

“I don’t think there are a lot of risks associated with those processes [used to produce hot dogs or bacon],” says Betsy Booren, director of scientific affairs for the American Meat Institute Foundation.

“They’re made from meat, which is needed in the body.”
