An examination of the Nurses' Health Study of 88,410 women has revealed that "'there was] approximately two-fold higher risk of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma among women who consumed a higher amount of beef, pork or lamb..."

The analysis was by Drs. Zhang, Hunter, Willett et al, of the Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, Channing Lab., the Dana-Farber Cancer Insti., and Brigham & Women's Hospital, all of Boston, Mass.

DETAILS: Men were not covered in this study, but males should not be too confident about their choice between losing weight with a high-protein diet vs. getting cancer. This diet may also increase the risk of kidney disease for both men and women. And there are other ways to lose weight, as shown elsewhere and in Health Bulletin.
