Risk for colorectal cancer high with eating red meat

Eating red meat or processed meat can increase your chance of having colorectal cancer//, said a new study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

Colon and rectum together form the colorectal area. That is why often colon cancer is also called colorectal cancer. Cancer of the colorectal happens when there is growth of abnormal or malignant cells within the lining of colon or rectum.

The study called European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition have investigated the medical health records of 4,78,040 men and women in the age group of 25 to 70 years across the 10 European countries. The study, which looked into the dietary habits of the people, was conducted for ten years before the results were summed up.

The results of the study had showed that the risk of developing colorectal or bowel cancer is positively related to eating red and processed meat. The risk could be as much as 30% more in people consuming red meat than those who don’t. The result also showed that eating of fish reduces the risk of having bowel cancer in people when compared to those who did not ate even a serving per week.
