Consumption of different types of meat and the risk of renal cancer: meta-analysis of case-control studies

Habitual intake of all types of meat could trigger the development of cancerous cells and tumors in the kidney.

This meta-analysis studied the meat-kidney (renal) cancer connection hypothesis. Researchers gathered data from 13 studies published between 1966 and 2006. 

Researchers discovered that regular meat eaters were 27% more likely than non-meat eaters to develop renal cancer. This study shed more light on the kidney cancer-promoting effect of meat.
