The PCRM says a recent study of 9,287 individuals showed a 15% increase in risk of colorectal cancer with consumption of red meat and a 11% increased risk with consumption of processed meats. These risks increased to 20 and 39 percent with two different genetic variants. Consumption of fruits & vegetables decreased risks of colorectal cancer.

The PCRM says “More than half of the meat products Americans consume are red meat, and nearly a quarter are processed meat.1 Processed meat products include bacon, deli slices, sausage, hot dogs, and any other meat products that have been preserved with additives or otherwise manipulated to alter color, taste, and durability. Current dietary guidelines recommend limiting red and processed meat products, but eliminating them may be the safest option, because scientific research continues to identify health hazards these products pose. What Makes These.”

If you are concerned about your health, eliminate red meats and processed meats from you diet and increase drastically your consumption of fruits and vegetables. It’s your life, CHOOSE YOUR FUEL WISELY!
