Studies Show No Link Between Meat Intake And Breast Cancer

Washington, DC - An analysis examining the relationship between diet and breast cancer showed no link between eating meat and dairy and risk of developing the disease.
Researchers with the American Society for Nutrition said in a statement that they actually found that moderate consumption of meat and dairy is important in overall nutrition since many women don't get enough iron and calcium in their diets.
The disease is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States, killing about 41,000 people a year.
The analysis will be published in the September edition of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
