Something for Rojaks females readers,

If you eat lotsa beef, mutton, lamb, pork .... then your chances of getting breast cancer is higher, thats according to a study done in the UK.

Buden maybe the red meat in our country does not have the same effect on human body??

What is gonna become of this world ledi la? Vege kenot eat bcoz got lotsa pesticides! red meat kenot eat bcoz can get breast cancer! karbo kenot eat too much bcoz will become fat, this kenot eat, that kenot eat! MCH!!!

This is the price to pay for the so call "modernization" greedy farkers dont give a fark about your health as long as their wallet is full!

I think we are actually going backwards instead of moving forward, the best thing to do next is to plant your own veges and rare your own meat. Just like how life was 50 years ago!

Red meat link to breast cancers

Eating large amounts of red meat may double young women's breast cancer risk, a study suggests.

US researchers writing in Archives of Internal Medicine looked at over 90,000 pre-menopausal women.

Having one-and-a-half servings of red meat per day almost doubled the risk of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer compared to three or fewer per week.

UK cancer experts said animals in the UK were not given growth hormones which are used for US animals.

Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston studied women who were part of the Nurses' Health Study II from 1989 to 2003.

The women filled out questionnaires in 1991, 1995 and 1999, on which they recorded how often they regularly consumed more than 130 different foods and beverages.

A portion of meat was defined as beef, pork or lamb as a main dish, in a sandwich or eating a hamburger, bacon, hot-dogs or other processed meat as part of a meal.

Every two years, they reported whether or not they had developed breast cancer. Cases were confirmed through hospital records and pathology reports.

The researchers also looked at the whether the women's tumours were fuelled by the hormones oestrogen or progesterone.

By the end of the study, 1,021 women had developed breast cancer.

There were 512 cases of cancers which were oestrogen and progesterone-receptor positive, 167 that were negative, 110 with mixed status and 232 with unknown status.
