C. Red meat and processed meat intake do not appear to be independently associated with a higher risk of breast cancer, according to a new review and meta-analysis of large studies on red and processed meats and breast cancer published in Nutrition Research Reviews.

The meta-analysis utilised data from the Pooling Project, a large collection of data from eight cohort studies, combined with data from nine studies published between 2004 and 2009 and one study published in 1996.

The study’s researchers, from Exponent Health Sciences Practice and Emory University, concluded that, "Overall, weak positive summary associations were observed across all meta-analysis models, with the majority being non-statistically significant".
