A National Cancer Center team said Monday it has found people who eat large amounts of red meat are at greater risk of colon cancer and is advising consumption of beef and pork be pared.

The team tracked until 2006 the eating habits and cancer risks of some 80,000 men and women who were between the ages of 45 and 74 in the second half of the 1990s, including 788 who developed colon cancer during the tracking period, and divided them into five groups according to their meat consumption.
