A prestigious study published by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute has linked red meat and dairy consumption to pancreatic cancer. The article states:
We observed positive associations between pancreatic cancer and intakes of total, saturated, and monounsaturated fat overall, particularly from red meat and dairy food sources….Altogether, these results suggest a role for animal fat in pancreatic carcinogenesis.
Given that this study had half a million participants, the results are a severe blow to the beef, pork, and dairy industries. Link.
