Red Meat Links to More Cancers

Today’s issue of CRU features a large study that connects to AICR new education campaign for older Americans, It’s Never Too Late to Reduce Your Cancer Risk. In the study, people who ate lots of red meat had a higher risk of esophageal cancer compared to those who ate the least red meat. It relates to our campaign because the study was conducted in about 400,000 people who were 50 to 71 years old at the start of the study. Researchers followed the participants health for a decade, and looked at both esophageal and stomach cancer.
