Breast Cancer and Meat Connection?

Just a few days ago, I published a blog discussing the connection of diet to cancer, including reference to a study showing that eating char broiled meat increased the risk of breast cancer by some 74%. Now a new study published in the Harvard University Gazette has found that women who had more than one and half servings of red meat a day (however it was cooked) literally doubled their risk of hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.

It seems that almost every week now a new study appears, yet again, to confirm that when we refer to a "family history" as a cancer risk factor, we're really talking about a shared family lifestyle of diet and environment -- things that are changeable, even reversible.
