Does Red Meat Cause Cancer?

does red meat cause cancer

Avoid this, it causes cancer, avoid that, it causes cancer too. We hear often contradictory information about foods we should and shouldn’t eat. What’s the case with red meat? Does it cause cancer or not?

Recently it was red meat in the firing line as a potential cause of colorectal cancer after the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated that consuming red meat twice a week could increase cancer risk. Apparently, this is a controversial declaration within the WHO itself, with the panel not being unanimous on this stance.

A University of Oxford study found that consuming four serves of red meat a week does increase the risk of colorectal cancer. What’s interesting is that the same study reported that they couldn’t find a connection between processed meats and this same cancer.
