According to the Telegraph, Dr Amanda Cross, who led the study, said that not enough data was available to draw conclusive findings, and called for further studies.

A few other studies have already proven a link between meat and cancer of the bladder and bowels.

The new research is to be published today in the online journal of the American Cancer Society.
