But the increase from meats is for 100g of meat.

Good question — I was hoping to get more marginal figures but I was in a rush so I found the first numbers I came across that did the trick. That said, since the average consumption of red meat is 50g–100g per day, adding 100g is increasing your consumption by 2x to 4x, which is a pretty significant figure. It’s therefore not that unreasonable to compare what amounts to “heavy meat eating” (200g/day) to “heavy smoking” (2 packs per day), where the figures are more like a 34% increased likelihood of colorectal cancer due to eating meat (as compared to eating no meat at all) vs. a 5000–6000% increased likelihood of lung cancer due to smoking cigarettes.
