Red and processed meat and colorectal cancer incidence: meta-analysis of prospective studies.

Individuals on high meat diets are highly vulnerable to colorectal cancer.

The aim of this study is to evaluate the relationship between regular consumption of red and processed meats and the risk of colorectal cancer by meta-analysis. Researchers reviewed data obtained from relevant published studies on the subject.

Researchers found a high incidence of colorectal and colon cancer among subjects who consistently consumed more than 100g of fresh red meat per day and 50g of processed meat products per day. High intake of red and processed meats was found to have little or no effect of rectal cancer risk. The results of this meta-analysis show that habitual consumption of red and processed meats may increase an individual’s chances of developing colorectal and colon cancer.
