Red meat consumption during adolescence among premenopausal women and risk of breast cancer.

​Generous intake of high red meat diets during adolescence may up the risk of breast cancer in premenopausal women.

This study analyzed the relationship between red meat intake during adolescent life and the likelihood of developing breast cancer in premenopausal women. Researchers followed 39,268 premenopausal women for 7 years and compared their dietary habits during high school with breast cancer incidence in later life.

Researchers discovered that premenopausal women who ate the most red meat when they were adolescents had higher chances of developing breast cancer than their counterparts who ate the least amount. Data from this study suggest that high intake of red meat during adolescence may increase a premenopausal woman's susceptibility to breast cancer.
