It's a big report for all the red meat eaters as researchers have found higher risks of developing bowel cancer in people, who are fond of eating red meat and have high intake of same.
Red meat has large amounts of iron in it, which experts fear can trigger the levels of cancerous cells in the red meat eater. With the new discovery, hopes to get new treatments for the bowel cancer have gone up too as mopping up of the iron levels see some chances.
Bowel cancer patients develop cells, which are hit by the defective gene called APC. While studying the effect of the lessening the iron levels in the diet fed to mice, it was discovered that mice, which all were fed with low iron diet are at lesser risks of suffering cancer no matter if the gene was defective or no.
On the other hand, mice that were fed with higher iron intake showed increased risks to developing the cancer and that too were higher with two to three times, reported the Daily Mail.
Regarding the above findings, Mr. Owen Sansom, Deputy Director of the Cancer Research UK Institute, Glasgow, who led the study, said: "We've made a huge step in understanding how bowel cancer develops. The APC gene is faulty in around eight out of 10 bowel cancers but until now we haven't known how this causes the disease".
