Red meat and the effect on the incidence of breast cancer

Well, the results of the study cited in this following article are not particularly appetizing (that's a pun, albeit a bad one).

What does the study say? That, for older women, even consuming small amounts of red meat can significantly and dramatically increase the risk of developing breast cancer. The increased risk was actually pegged at 56%, which should be enough to make a lot of people, not just women, begin to evaluate what percentage of their protein intake actually comes from red meat consumption.

Of course, not everyone agrees with the results of this research. One individual referred to it as rubbish. As you'll see in the article, he is the chairman of a butcher's guild.
