The risk of colorectal cancer is associated with the frequency of meat consumption in a population-based cohort in Korea.

High dietary ingestion of meat may facilitate the development of colorectal cancer.

​This study evaluated the correlation between meat intake and the incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in Korean population. With the aid of validated food frequency questionnaires, researchers obtained the dietary information of 2,248,129 men and women for 6-7 years. The colorectal cancer odds ratio of each participant was also determined. 

Researchers found out that meat lovers were at higher risk of acquiring colorectal cancer than non-consumers of these animal foods. "The present findings suggest that frequency of meat consumption is positively associated with the risk of CRC," the authors concluded.
