I am so glad I found the AntiCancer Lifestyle Program. This is an amazing idea and gift. Our son-in-law at 39 has glioblastoma. After surgery, chemo, and radiation we hope, no relapse. Hope, however, is not a plan. My wife and I are changing to help him change.”

“My patients respond to the Anticancer Lifestyle Program in a way I find unprecedented in 30 years of Radiation Oncology practice. It helps them feel that we are caring for them, and not just delivering cancer treatment.”

“If you are a Human Resources or wellness professional looking to take your employee health and well-being strategies to the next level, the Anticancer Lifestyle Program is unrivaled. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Offering this course to all of our employees really underscores how much we care about them and their loved ones.”

Red and processed meat and risk of breast cancer

A meta-analysis showed that the relative risk for breast cancer was 6% higher in people who consumed the most unprocessed red meat than in those who consumed the least; for processed meat, the relative risk was 9% higher (Int J Cancer. 2018;143:2787-2799).

Another study showed that postmenopausal women who consumed large amounts of processed meat had a 64% higher risk for breast cancer than postmenopausal women who consumed no processed meat (Br J Cancer. 2007;96:1139-1146).

On a positive note, though, data from the Nurses’ Health Study II showed that when adolescents replaced one serving of red meat a day with poultry, fish, legumes, or nuts, risk for overall breast cancer decreased by 16% and risk for premenopausal breast cancer decreased by 24% (Int J Cancer. 2015;136:1909-1920).
