Swapping red meat for poultry associated with reduced breast cancer risk: study
Women who consumed more poultry had reduced risk of developing invasive breast cancer.
Women who swap steak for chicken may have a reduced risk of developing breast cancer, according to a new study.
Researchers from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in the U.S. found an association between increased red meat consumption and a higher risk of breast cancer while eating more poultry was associated with a lower chance of contracting the disease.
Specifically, they found that women who ate the most red meat had a 23 per cent higher risk of developing the disease compared with those who consumed lower amounts.
