Do vegans have lower cancer incidence and mortality than meat eaters?
Do vegans have lower cancer incidence and mortality than meat eaters? Evidence-Based Answer: Individuals who consume a vegan diet likely have a lower overall cancer incidence than individuals who consume meat (SOR: B, large cohort studies). There is no known difference in cancer mortality between the 2 groups, but the study numbers are small, making it difficult to draw conclusions (SOR: B, large cohort study).
