Blog 7: Study Claims Processed Meats Cause Cancer

  1. The article I chose conducted an international study that suggested 1.75 ounces of meat induced daily increases the risk of colorectal cancer over a lifetime by about 18 percent. I chose this article based on the 10% make-up that colorectal cancer has within people with cancer worldwide.
  1. To conduct this study a group of 22 scientists from the IARC evaluated more than 800 studies from several continents about meat and cancer. The studies looked at more than a dozen types of cancer in populations with diverse diets over the past 20 years and concluded that risks rise with the amount consumed.
  1. How will this affect international countries that make much of their profit off of production and consumption of meat? Will these statistics decrease the number of colon cancer cases?
