Cancer-causing Animal Fats

A new study finds a link between animal fat and pancreatic cancer.

Just in time for grilling season, a new study carried out by the National Cancer Institute discovered that people who consume animal fats have a higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer. In a six-year study of 500,000 people, participants kept a food diary that detailed their daily eats. Over the years, 1,337 participants developed pancreatic cancer. Of those people, participants who consumed high amounts of total, saturated, and monounsaturated fats—particularly from red meat and dairy—had 36 percent higher relative rates of pancreatic cancer compared to those who ate the least. Men with a high animal fat diet had a 53 percent higher relative rate of pancreatic cancer compared to those who consumed the least amounts, while women had a 23 percent higher rate than those who ate the least. Cut the fat and reach for a soy cheese-topped veggie burger at your next grill-out.
