Eating red meat early in life may increase risk of breast cancer

A new study finds that eating a lot of red meat early in life can possibly raise the risk of breast cancer in women.
That's according to the latest edition of the British Medical Journal.

Researchers found those women who ate a lot of red meat had a 22% increased risk of developing breast cancer.
The study authors believe that replacing red meat with a combination of other, less fatty proteins may reduce the risk of breast cancer.
