The often observed association between red meat and colorectal cancercould be due in part to mutagens, such as heterocyclic amines (HCA), that arepresent in cooked meat. HCAs are highly mutagenic and cause intestinal tumorsin animals. The hypothesis that HCAs are also carcinogenic to humans remainsto be substantiated in epidemiologic studies. We determined the associationsof meat preparation and frequency of intake (proxy variables for HCAexposure, since HCA concentration depends on the type of… CONTINUE READING
