A new Harvard University study out this week says breast cancer is possibly linked to red meat consumption. South Dakota Beef Industry Council’s Director of Nutrition and Consumer Information Holly Swee says not only is that study off base, it’s totally untrue.
Swee says eating red meat has no connection to breast cancer.
Swee who’s a registered dietician says consuming a balanced diet including lean meat and exercising are keys to keeping healthy.
She says the American Cancer Society and other professional health organizations have noted that smoking, drinking alcohol to excess and lack of exercise are more likely to cause diseases like cancer than is eating red meat or any other food.
