I don’t want to gross you out with a photo of red meat, so here’s an adorable calf instead.
Red meat causes breast cancer? Why am I not surprised?
Women who ate more than 1½ servings of red meat per day were almost twice as likely to develop hormone-related breast cancer as those who ate fewer than three portions per week
An editorial in today’s New York Times responds:
The silver lining — if red meat does indeed increase the risk of breast cancer — is that the cure would be simple: Just eat less meat.
Not perfect, but hey, they’re getting there.
