According to a analysis, consumption of processed meat may causes to higher risk of breast cancer. Especially, modern day women who are more addicted to such items must be conscious about these things and nowadays we are hearing about types of cancers . Breast cancer has now became common, infact it has been affecting the women at very early age, all because of lifestyle.
Comparing the highest to the lowest category in the 15 studies included in the analysis, consumption of processed meat is associated with 9% higher risk of breast cancer.
Two studies evaluated the connection between the red meat and breast cancer arranged by patients’ genotypes regarding N-acetyltransferase 2 acetylator. (Differences in activity of this enzyme are thought to modify the carcinogenic effect of meat.) . The researchers did not observe any association among patients with either fast or slow N-acetyltransferase 2 acetylators.
Researchers didn’t observe the significant association between unprocessed meat intake and risk of breast cancer.
Dr. Maryam Farvid, Lead author of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, said, “Previous works linked increased risk of some types of cancer to higher processed meat intake, and this recent meta-analysis suggests that processed meat consumption may also increase breast cancer risk. Therefore, cutting down processed meat seems beneficial for the prevention of breast cancer.”.
