Abstract

Background: Colorectal carcinoma (C.R.C.) is a significant public health concern worldwide, and dietary factors, including red meat consumption, have been implicated in its etiology. This systematic review aims to examine the Association between red meat consumption and C.R.C. risk, specifically within the population of Islamabad, Pakistan.


Methods: A comprehensive literature search was conducted in major databases, including PubMed, Embase, and Scopus, using relevant keywords. Studies assessing the Association between red meat consumption and C.R.C. risk among individuals in Islamabad were included. Data was extracted to collect information on study characteristics, red meat consumption assessment methods, C.R.C. diagnosis, and demographic variables.


Results: The included studies varied in design, representing both observational and interventional studies. Red meat consumption was assessed using various methods, including food frequency questionnaires and dietary recalls. C.R.C. diagnosis was typically confirmed through histopathological examination. Preliminary findings suggest a potential positive association between red meat consumption and C.R.C. risk in Islamabad, although further research is needed to confirm these observations.


Conclusion: This systematic review provides an overview of the current evidence regarding the Association between red meat consumption and C.R.C. risk in Islamabad. While initial findings suggest a possible link, additional well-designed studies are warranted to establish causality and inform preventive strategies in this population.
