The vegetarians are have much less risk to attack by cancer than the people who eat red meats. Financed by the UK Cancer Research a group of scientists made a study and found this fact. The researchers of UK and Newzealand made study on 61566 British men and women. They said those who eat meat,fish or vegetables they all can be attacked by cancer. But those who only eat vegetables their risk of cancer is only 29%.Specially in case of blood cancer the risk for vegetarians is 75 per cent less than the meat eaters. A spokesman of UK Cancer Research said, we knew that eating of red meats and processed meats can develop cancer in stomach. This research established that fact.

this is even better news for me. as i rarely like eating a lot of meat. this household here im in has been very bad about having meat on the table every day. and now thankfully they are starting to decide to go mostly vegetarian for loosing weight. i think that is also a good idea for many reasons myself.

Hi bhanusb, thanks for the informative topic. i am a non vegetarian but i am still confused by what is red meat? I eat chicken and fish only - not every day its two times a week rest of the days is vegetables. I have a question that cancer is 29% in vegi people why not 0%. what is the main cause of cancer? enjoy mylotting

Mainly cow,goat,pig,camel and all the beasts meats are red meats. Bird's meats are not red meats. Meat eaters have 75% risk of cancer. In that case vegetarians have very low risk of cancer.I don't know what is the main cause of cancer. It's still under research.
