It may be a case of needing to put the double hamburger patty down, as new research shows women who indulge in red meat have a slightly higher risk of developing breast cancer. 

Researchers at Harvard University have analysed data collected from 88.000 women between the ages of 26 to 45, who filled in surveys in 1991. 

According to the results, there were an extra 6.8 cases of breast cancer for every 1000 women who ate the most amount of red meat. 

It's believed the proteins in red meat speed up cell division growth. 

The research was commissioned by the US National Institutes of Health.
