Steady Diet of Red Meat Increases Colon Cancer Risk

A 20-year study of more than 148,000 adults aged 50 to 74 found those with the highest consumption of those meats were 50 percent more likely to develop cancer in the lower colon than those with the lowest consumption. The report appears in the Jan. 12 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

This information is probably good to know, however, I would really like to see some studies that isolate consumers of organically raised and processed meats versus the meat that has been in the marketplace during this 20 year study.
