Study: Red meat increases colon cancer risk
Researchers say they have found more evidence that indicates that too much red or processed meat in the diet can increase the risk of colon cancer.
The American Cancer Society found 43 percent of patients who ate 10 or more servings of red meat per week- before being diagnosed- died of the disease within eight years. Thirty-seven percent of patients who ate two servings or less died over the same period of time.
Researchers say three to four servings of red meat per week is a good dietary benchmark.
