Meat Intake Is Associated with a Higher Risk of Ulcerative Colitis in a Large European Prospective Cohort Studyø

The likelihood of being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis may be high among consumers of meaty diets.

This study was carried out to ascertain the connection between fondness for meaty diets and the development of ulcerative colitis. Researchers studied nearly half a million men and women from eight European countries for 16 years with regards to their eating habits and ulcerative colitis diagnostic status. 

Researchers discovered that greater consumption of meat correlated with heightened risk of ulcerative colitis. This study demonstrated that the high dietary ingestion of meats may trigger the onset of ulcerative colitis.
