A Prospective Analysis of Red and Processed Meat Intake in Relation to Colorectal Cancer in the Black Women's Health Study

Increased intake of red meat may drive up the risk of colorectal cancer in black women.

This study examined whether avid consumption of red meat is tied to the subsequent development of colorectal cancer in black women. More than 50,000 black women volunteered for this study and were surveyed about their diet and health over a 22-year period. 

Researchers noted that colorectal cancer risk grew by 33% among women who ate 100 grams of unprocessed red meat per day. This study lend further support to the hypothesis that black women fond of consuming red meat may be liable to come down with colorectal cancer.
