Thank you to all those who voted in our Twitter poll to help us decide on this month’s twitter chat topic. The topic of November’s @AfNutr chat is Red and Processed Meat #RedMeatChat

A recent article in the Annals of Internal Medicine questioned the strength of evidence behind public advice to eat less red and processed meat for reducing cancer risk. As a result, there was a flurry of media coverage and headlines that called into question the advice given on meat consumption based on the findings of this one study.
