Cooked meat and risk of breast cancer--lifetime versus recent dietary intake

Sticking to a diet rich in smoked, barbecued, and grilled meat may make breast cancer more likely to occur in postmenopausal women.

This study determined the role cooked meat play in the development of breast cancer. Researchers compared the meat-eating habits of 1,508 women with breast cancer and another 1,556 women free from the disease. 

The research team noted that long-term consumption of grilled, barbecued, and smoked meat heightened the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women. The results of this study show that adhering to a diet loaded with smoked, barbecued, and grilled meat may set a postmenopausal woman on the path to developing breast cancer.
