People moving from red meat to chicken for health reasons will be concerned about a new study.
Eating chicken puts consumers at higher risk of a rare form of blood cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and prostate cancer in men, according to researchers at the University of Oxford.
About 475,000 middle-aged Britons were tracked between 2006 and 201
About 23,000 of them have developed cancer,
"Bird intake is positively associated with a risk of malignant melanoma, prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma," according to a paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Health Health.
The Daily Mail describes a study as an "association study," meaning that it only shows the link between eating chicken and certain cancers.
The reasons may include a method of cooking.
Red meat, especially if processed, is associated with bowel cancer. The NHS has created a guide to how much it is considered safe to consume on a balanced diet.
