Low-meat and meat-free diets associated with lower overall cancer risk

Risk of cancer in regular and low meat-eaters, fish-eaters, and vegetarians: a prospective analysis of UK Biobank participants

Eating meat five times or less per week is associated with a lower overall cancer risk.

Data from 470,000 adults (40-70yo) - incidence of new cancers over 11 years = 12% of participants.

- 52% ate meat >5 times/week,
- 44% ate meat =<5 times/week = 2% lower cancer risk (especially colorectal cancer).
- 2% ate fish not meat = 10% lower cancer risk (especially prostate cancer).
- 2% vegetarian/vegan = 14% lower cancer risk (especially prostate & breast cancers).
