Meat-free diet 'could reduce cancer risk'

In an article written in The Independent, Beverly Rouse helps us look at and understand the benefits of eating a meat free diet.. In a group of more than 61,000 people that spanned over 12 years, their findings showed that people who ate meat were 12% more likely to develop cancer than people who did not eat meat.. To some that number may not seem like a lot, to a person who has cancer that runs in the family and makes other poor lifestyle choices such as drinking and smoking, this number can be quite significant. I don’t understand some people who always say that some things are not meant to give up or, the risk is worth the reward. Are usually the people who need it the most.
