Was Oprah Right? Or, Does Eating Fish Protect Against Colon Cancer? And Does Red or Processed Meat Cause It?

Home  /  Cancer  /  Was Oprah Right? Or, Does Eating Fish Protect Against Colon Cancer? And Does Red or Processed Meat Cause It?
Dr John La Puma

A new research study prospectively followed up 478,040 men and women aged 25-70 years from 10 European countries for 6 years. The deviled ham is always in the details: the risk was 35% higher in people eating the most red and processed meats (over 5 oz/day) compared with those eating the least (less than 1 oz/day).

Fish eaters rejoice: one third less colon cancer for people who ate almost 3 oz of fish every other day, compared with those who ate fish less than once a week.

Red meat was defined as beef, lamb, pork, and veal. Processed meat was mostly pork and preserved beef products: ham, bacon, sausages, liver pate, salami and canned meats.

Is it the preservatives, the hormones, the nitrites, the charring, the method of cooking? Too early to know. But not too early to eat well.
