Saturated Fat Linked to Small Intestine Cancer...
A new study in Cancer Research claims eating foods high in saturated fat, like red meat, may heighten the risk of cancer in the small intestine. HealthDay News Reports:
Previous research had identified a link between red and processed meats and cancer of the large intestine, but this is the first prospective study to examine the association between meat and fat intake and cancer of the small intestine.
During the study, 60 adenocarcinomas and 80 carcinoid tumors of the small intestine were diagnosed among the participants, and an elevated risk for these cancers was associated with saturated fat intake.
