Women who eat too much red meat in early adulthood may be at increased risk of developing breast cancer later in life, according to new Harvard University research.

In the study, researchers analysed data collected from 89,000 premenopausal women over a 20 year period, and found that women who consumed high protein diets were associated with a 22 per cent increased risk of breast cancer overall.

Australian guidelines recommend small servings of red meat three to four times a week, as part of a healthy diet from the five food groups. Replacing red meat for legumes, poultry, nuts and fish was also shown to lower the risk of breast cancers, researchers say.
