In a study published at PSA Rising shows that eating red meat and drinking milk may put these animal proteins in close proximity to our cells causing an immune system response that may result in cancer tumors. These results are published in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). A molecule (sugar based) called N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) is introduced into humans via red meat consumption. The body then produces anti agents to combat these molecules. This can lead to chronic inflammation and cancer.
