July 31, 2014

The link between red and processed meat to colorectal cancer was reconfirmed in a 2014 review of research conducted by the National Cancer Institute.

 

The findings were “convincing,” said the investigators of the studies they analyzed, which included a major 2007 report by the World Cancer Research Foundation and the American Institute for Cancer Research.
