These alarming numbers come from a ten year study by the National Institute of Health that followed 545,653 people between the ages of 50 and 71. People eating as little as about 4-5 ounces of beef, pork or processed meat a day significantly increased their risk of dying during the ten year study. . . . Men were at a 31% greater risk, and women at a 36% greater risk, of overall death. Men were 22% more likely, and women 20% more likely, to die of cancer. Men were 27%, and women 50%, more likely to die of heart disease.
