Biomarker-Calibrated Red and Combined Red and Processed Meat Intakes with Chronic Disease Risk in a Cohort of Postmenopausal Women

Habitual meat consumption may spur the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disorders, in postmenopausal women.

This study evaluated the ingestion of a meaty diet and it's relationship with the development of chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, in postmenopausal women. Researchers collated data on the eating habits and health of over 80,000 women who took part in the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) Study. 

Researchers found out that people on high red and processed meat diet had greater propensity to acquire chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, heart failure, and coronary artery disease (CAD). This study concluded that "a relatively high-meat dietary pattern is associated with somewhat higher chronic disease risks."
