A vegetarian diet may help to protect against cancer, according to a new study. Analysis of data from 52,700 men and women shows that those who did not eat meat had significantly fewer cancers overall.
However, the researchers also found a higher rate of colorectal cancer (a disease often linked with eating red meat) among the vegetarians.
