Women who eat flame-grilled meats may run a significantly higher risk of developing breast cancer compared to women who never eat grilled meat, according to a new study.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University examined the diets and eating patterns of 312 women with breast cancer and 316 women without the disease, and found that women who ate flame-grilled foods more than twice per month experienced a 74 percent increased risk of breast cancer compared to women who never ate flame-grilled foods.
The researchers also reported similar increases in breast cancer risk for women who ate more meat in general.
Researchers found that women who reported eating more than 64 grams of meat per day -- compared to women who ate equal to or less than 64 grams per day -- ran a 43 percent increased risk of developing breast cancer.
