American Meat Institute Calls WCRF Panel Recommendations on Meat Consumption Extreme and Unfounded

The paper, "Meat and fat intake and colorectal cancer risk: A pooled analysis of 14 prospective studies" was presented in abstract form, but never appears in its complete form in the published literature three years after it was presented. As a result, these data were not factored into WCRF's 2007 report.

"This study uses what is considered perhaps the most reliable approach to analyzing relationships: pooling original data together and analyzing it," Huffman said. "Given the study's size, approach and very important finding, we'd like to know why it hasn't published. WCRF and consumers deserve access to this federally funded data, which shows that red meat and processed meat were not associated with colon cancer." Media reports indicate that lawmakers are now asking Harvard why the study has not published given its completion three years ago, given its federal funding and given the significant impact it may have had on WCRF's conclusions.

"When this Harvard data showing no relationship between red meat and cancer is coupled with studies that found no association or only weak associations between red meat and cancer, we must absolutely dispute WCRF's conclusions," Huffman added.

Processed Meats Are Safe

Huffman also disputed the report's extreme recommendations on processed meats. Huffman pointed out that "our own systematic review of the literature by independent epidemiologists has documented that 15 of 16 comparisons regarding processed meat and colorectal cancer were not statistically significant. The literature simply does not support the recommendations of the WCRF report," he said.

"Processed meats that contain nitrite are safe and sodium nitrite is an essential ingredient whose safety is without question," Huffman said. "The National Toxicology Program in 2000 -- considered the gold standard when it comes to assessing cancer risk -- fed very high levels of nitrite to rats and mice. The NTP panel determined that
