Meat Compounds May Boost Bladder Cancer Risk

U.S. researchers analyzed data from about 300,000 men and women, aged 50 to 71, from eight states who took part in a large prospective study on diet and health.

During eight years of follow-up, 854 participants were diagnosed with bladder cancer.

People whose diets had the highest levels of dietary nitrite (from all sources and not just from meat) and those whose diets had the highest amounts of nitrate plus nitrite from processed meats were 28 percent to 29 percent more likely to develop bladder cancer than those who consumed the lowest amounts of those compounds, according to the NIH-AARP Diet and Health Study.
