A new study from the National Cancer Institute shows a link between people who eat a large amount of red and processed meats to a higher risk of developing several types of cancer. These cancers include lung cancer and colorectal cancer.

Researchers examined data from a large U.S. diet and health study conducted by Amanda Cross and colleagues at the National Cancer Institute and is published in the latest issue of PLoS Medicine.

Researchers say 1 in 10 colorectal and 1 in 10 lung cancers could be avoided if people reduced their red and processed meat intake to very low amounts.

The American Cancer Society has warned for many years of a connection between red meat and colon cancer.
