Consumption of animal foods and endometrial cancer risk: a systematic literature review and meta-analysis.

High intake of all types of meat, especially red meat, may increase the likelihood of developing endometrial cancer in women.

This study examined the correlation between the consumption of animal products, such as meat, fish, eggs, and milk, and endometrial cancer risk. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis on data obtained from several cohort and case-control studies.

Researchers found a high incidence of endometrial cancer among women who consumed more than 100g of all types of meat, particularly red meat, per day. According to this study, high intakes of dairy products, poultry, fish, and eggs were found to have no significant effect on endometrial cancer risk. The results of this study support the hypothesis that high consumption of red meat may promote the development of endometrial cancer in women.
