Stop cancer: cut down on the red meat


Eating large quantities of red meat, such as lamb, beef or pork, not only increases the risk of developing bowel cancer, but also means you are consuming many fatty calories, the type that cause weight problems, which is also a cancer risk factor.

An easy way to reduce your red meat intake is to reassess its role in your daily meals. Meat doesn’t always have to be the star element in order to make a delicious meal. Take, for example, couscous with grilled vegetables – a delicious summer dish!
Create variety in your eating habits by swapping out red meat for chicken, fish or eggs! Or try replacing meat altogether by another source of protein from time to time, such as lentils, peas or runner beans.
