Red Meat & Cancer Development

FRESNO, Calif.

Researchers say red-meat lovers may have a greater likelihood of developing certain cancers of the throat and stomach than people who eat less of it.

Study participants in the top 20-percent for red-meat intake were 79-percent more likely to develop esophageal cancer.

The American Cancer Society estimates that about 21,000 cases will be diagnosed this year.

Doctors recommend limiting red and processed meats for overall good health.
