Two Components of Red Meat Increase Risk for Bladder Cancer, University of Southern California Study


10/18/2012 7:48:27 AM

Two components of red meat—dietary protein and dietary iron—may combine to form powerful carcinogens, N-nitroso compounds, which increase risk for bladder cancer. Moreover, individuals with reduced ability to reverse the effects of N-nitroso compounds because of a genetic variation in their RAD52 gene could be at particularly high risk.
