Eating Red Meat May Increase Breast Cancer Incidents in Women

Eating red meat, even small amounts, may increase a woman's chance of developing breast cancer.

An eight year study out of England found the risk level varies in three different ways including how much meat you eat, how often, and what kind of meat you eat.

White meat is safest, processed meat is the worst.

Your hormonal status also plays a role.

Post-menopausal women run greater risk than pre-menopausal women.

Researchers say this new study does not mean you need to give up red meat altogether.

The meat industry says today's news is just another scare tactic, and there is no proof of a cancer link.

The study was published in the British Journal of Cancer.
