Eating Less Meat Cuts Cancer Risk

A study by Oxford University published in BMC Medicine shows that eating meat no more than five times per week may slash the risk of getting cancer. Post menopausal women are 18 per cent less likely to get breast cancer compared to those who eat meat more than five times a week.

The study of 470,000 people aged 40 to 70 also found that eating meat less often cuts the odds of getting bowel cancer by some nine per cent.
