No Link Found Connecting Red Meat and Prostate Cancer

Dietary intake of red meat or processed meat has no positive association with the occurrence of prostate cancer, according to a new meta-analysis of 26 studies.

The review, published in Nutrition Journal, looked at data from 15 large scale prospective studies on red meat and 11 studies investigating processed meats and cancer risk – finding that consumption of red or processed meats overall have no association with prostate cancer.

“The results of this meta-analysis are not supportive of an independent positive association between red or processed meat intake and prostate cancer,” stated the researchers, led by Dr Dominik Alexander of Exponent Health Sciences Practice.
