#6 Myth about Red Meat: Red meat causes cancer.

Fact: Some research suggests that excess consumption of red meat causes cancer. But most of these studies do not mention other merits or demerits of the research samples. Mentions of whether the individuals had any form of exercise or other ways to stay fit, are rarely seen.

Some research also claims that grilling red meat causes cancer, which, if it were true, would put a lot many people in danger. On taking a closer look at these studies, it appears that they are talking about carcinogens formed by excessive heat applied to any food, red meat or otherwise. In fact, did you know that some studies even suggested that toasts cause cancer? Apparently, the charred surface creates carcinogens.

Bottom-line:
There is no hard hitting evidence to suggest that moderate consumption of red meat causes cancer.
