Wow!!! what a disgrace!!!! Red meat not only has zero health benefits but is actually one of the top foods to avoid!!! It is loaded with hormomes which everyone knows enables caner growth. Red meat also emits carcinogens as it is cooked!!!!! A woman can get iron and nutrients in other ways. RED MEAT IS A HUGE NO!!!!! U should really become informed and educated before you publish information!!! Especially concerning a topic as serious as breast cancer!!!!!
Are you serious? Red meat with or without antibiotics can turn on tumor growth and turn it off. (China Study). More responsible reporting please. I'm disappointed in your recommendations.
Meat should be avoided by women for breast cancer and heart disease issues! This is dangerous advice!! I am a breast cancer survivor and everything I have read recommends NOT eating meat.
so eat something that INCREASES your risk for breast cancer in order to get selenium? Our bodies benefit moderate amounts sodium, shall I swallow bucket fulls of morton table salt? Because this is the logic you are applying here!!! There are other ways to get this in your system, not a food that INCREASES breast cancer. Idiots
Red meat, are you serious, I was told to avoid it. The suggested that I become vegan to reduce the inflammation in my body. I can't believe that fitness magazine would even print it without doing some research. I have not touch any red meat in over a year.
Beef for fighting breast cancer?? What about women who have gotten rid of breast cancer by giving up meat and going vegan!!! Quite the opposite is true, I can't believe my eyes. Do some research-have you seen "Forks over Knives"?
We just need to follow the money trail to figure out why fitness magazine would contribute to the death of women by promoting meat.
not just hormones...that's absolutely true, but let's not stop there. How about anti-biotics? I'm sure exposure to those won't help fight breast cancer either. Most livestock that are factory farmed get a heavy dose of anti-biotics. So many issues with the factory farming I don't know where to even begin. Organic free range beef that eats grass may be OK, but we still shouldn't eat a lot of it either.
Agree with above....all animals have growth horomones (even organic!) growth horomones cause tumors to grow!~ Worst advice...come on fitness!
ARE YOU KIDDING? You're telling women that they should eat BEEF to prevent breast cancer? Do you know how many horomones are in animal meat that CAUSE breast cancer? Wake up!!!
