But, is there a direct cause-and-effect relationship between red meat consumption and cancer?


Dr. Ruth MacDonald, Chair of the Food Science Department at Iowa State University, and Dr. Wendy Dahl, PhD, RD, FDC, Assistant Professor, Food Science and Human Nutrition Department, University of Florida, have differing opinions.
