Yes there has been more recent studies that say the opposite/ I quote from a vegetarian publication that triumphantly trumpets those findings. The intro to the report in JAMA starts " A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine indicates that vegetarians may be at lower risk for colorectal cancer than non-vegetarians, according to a Medscape report. The study involved a large observational cohort of Seventh-Day Adventists. The researchers found that vegetarians had a 22 percent lower risk of colorectal cancer than those who ate meat. Unexpectedly, pescovegetarians had a 43 percent risk reduction." This study is actually the ADVENT2 study that has been shown to be totally biassed, poor methodology, and incorrect statistical analysis. The study was paid for, performed entirely by the 7th Day Adventist Church, and had NO independant peer review done on it. It is a Prospective study in that it uses observational data collection, and that method cannot in any way prove any cause. This same study data is used to underpin the claims being made by the WFPB fraternity, and has also appeared in the WHO meta studies, and forms part of the EAT-Lancet report on a sustainble diet for 2050.
