The American Cancer Society (ACS) unveiled its new guidelines for reducing the risk of cancer. The organization advises people to eat less red and processed meat and more whole, plant-based foods. The new guidelines, published in the journal CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians on June 9, states that regular exercise and a “healthy eating pattern” can lower the risk for several types of cancer. Healthy eating, ACS notes, includes limiting or eliminating beef, pork, and lamb as well as processed meats such as bacon, hot dogs, and cold cuts. It also advises avoiding sugary drinks, alcohol, and refined grains.
