Is It True That A Vegetarian Diet Can Reduce The Probability Of Getting Cancer?

Postby Kin » Sun Oct 08, 2017 7:16 pm

No...

Nobody knows what causes cancer; many types of cancer have known or suspected risk factors; risk factors are not causes. A diet high in red and (especially) processed meat is a major risk factor for colorectal cancers. Obviously a vegetarian diet will reduce that risk; so will a diet that includes meat but limits or excludes red and pressed meats.

A diet high in red and processed meats is also thought to possibly increase the risk of stomach cancer.

A diet high in meat and fat may also increase the risk of pancreatic cancer.

That's about it for the known or suspected links between meat consumption and the 200+ diseases that come under the umbrella title of 'cancer'

Me, I have been a vegetarian most of my life and a vegan for 16 years. I was diagnosed with an aggressive and advanced breast cancer after more than 8 years as a vegan.

Through cancer support networks, I've met six other vegans with cancer (one of them a lifelong vegan) and dozens of vegetarians with cancer

Yes, studies have shown that populations with a lower amount of meat consumption have a lower cancer rate.

Although this may not be a contributing factor, the FDA allows animals that are slaughtered that have cancer or pus-fulled wounds to be sent off to stores and consumed by humans.

Supposedly it does for most cancers though i'm not really sure i trust their sources.

colonic cancer though it definitely does and is proven, lifelong vegetarians don't tend to have 20 year old digested meat left rotting around in the colon, though meat eaters do (at least one 20 year vegertarian was discovered with leftove meat in the colon) meat doesn't tend to be digested 100% by humans (we're herbivores by biology, what do you expect?) so we end up with some of it left around rotting away in the colon, though tbh i'd think a regular colonic irrigation would do well to reduce the chances of the colonic cancer.


that's just my thoughts on things though, if you want to be careful then go vegetarian to stop the supposed other causes of cancer from meat eating

One... dogs are actually not omnivores. those analyze are CRAP. Take any undemanding biology or anatomy classification, and you will see the stupidity of those words. dogs are CARNIVORES. 2... Omnivores choose for meat. Animal based protein source. because of the fact of this they're OMNIVORES and not HERBIVORES. 3... that weight loss plan is terrible. the place is the nutrition? dogs can no longer digest grains in any respect. The oats are doing no longer something, alongside with the toast... dogs have an extremely annoying time digesting the different plant life... the carrots do no longer something. All animals are lactose illiberal... the milk does no longer something. Eggs are healthful, yet uncooked, no longer cooked. The cheese is terrible on your dogs. Peanut butter is terrible for dogs... too lots salt. Pedigree dogs biscuits are made with MEAT, so there is going your vegetarian weight loss plan out the window. Granted, it somewhat is especially meat fat and poultry ft, yet hello, animal based is animal based. a minimum of placed your undesirable domestic dog on domestic dog nutrition earlier it dies of malnutrition! greater desirable yet, analyze a prey kind uncooked weight loss plan and feed your dogs species proper meals!
