Meat risk of cancer and heart disease

Leave a comment

CBS News reported that Carnitine found in meat may be cause of disease not the fat! but Harvard says 
Carnitine is also in chicken and pork and all animal protein
. The only way to avoid this is a vegan type diet that is void of animal proteins (meat, eggs, cheese and milk). On top of this disease causing agent, we have man added agents in meats that can raise the risk even higher. These are found in non organic meats and cold cuts. Then if we over cook the meat on a grill, the risk is even higher. So if you eat a lot of meat, mostly non organic and grill it you are at high risk of cancer and heart disease.

Another Doctor speaks up on Eating Animal Proteins

Dr. Fuhrman says there is a relationship between eating animal protein and diseases. He says red meat is not the only problem. Chicken, pork, fish can also cause disease. We believe that chicken is so much more healthy than beef but it contains about the same amount of cholesterol as beef. Chicken has more cancer causing heterocyclic amines (HCAs) than beef does. So why do ewe feel it is so healthy? Advertisements! Processed meats such as cold cuts have an even higher risk.


Red Meat Increases the Risk of Diabetes!

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) published a study that shows the increased consumption of red meat increases the risk of diabetes. The study was conducted by the American Medical Association. Decreasing red meat intake lowered weight gain and lowered the risk of diabetes. It’s not just sugar that raises your risk of diabetes! Also remember the so called “White Meat” is about 85% the same fat as red meat. Eating a diet of increased white meat may not be the solution either.

The Harvard School of Public Health says,1. Use liquid plant oils for cooking and baking.
2. Ditch the trans fat.
3. Switch from butter to soft tub margarine.
4. Eat at least one good source of omega-3 fats each day

5. Cut back on red meat, cheese, milk, and ice cream.


I agree with these guidelines except the last one. The so-called white meat is about 85% the fat of red, so you are not getting a low-fat amount. We have been marketed that white meat is so much healthier than red. It is close to the fat of red and should also be avoided or cut back on.

Fox reported on a study that fed steak to one group of people and had vegans in another group. They found that the steak contained a substance known as carnitine. Bacteria eat this and burp a chemical known as TMAO which can cause heart attacks. This study was unique in that it shows it is not just the cholesterol that is dangerous. I would love to see the same study with white meats. White meats still have a lot of cholesterol and about 85% of the saturated fat of red meats. I have reported on many studies finding different things in animal protein that can cause serious and deadly diseases in humans. The bottom line is if you really want to avoid illness become vegan. If you can’t do that, decrease your animal protein intake and increase your plant protein intake.

FOX TV says eating red meat can seriously increase your risk of heart disease. It also increases risk of cancer and most other chronic illnesses. See the fist video on my BLOG’s VIDEO TAB on the CDC study and what it found out. Is white meat any better? Some studies say NO! It is 85% the fat of red meat. It contains the same cancer causing items as red meat. In light of the overwhelming studies on the health benefits of a vegetarian and vegan diet and the drastic increase in all illnesses in our country … I CHOOSE A VEGETARIAN DIET. What do you choose?

Meat, Milk and Cancers

PSA Rising BLOG talks about how red meat and milk can introduce a sugar molecule not normally found in humans that may cause cancer. This research was done at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Meat and milk are animal protein from animals that are genetically very similar to us. Exposure to their tissue may cause abnormal epigenetic reactions that can lead to cancer. What are you eating? Is it really healthy for you?

Meat Will Shorten Your Life!

Mail Online posted in its Health Newsletter, a study indicating eating processed meats and red meats increases early mortality. They said: ‘The study calculates that lives would be saved if people replaced red meat with healthy protein sources such as fish, poultry, nuts and legumes and we would like to see more people replacing red meat with these type of foods.’ They also said eating 2 rashers of bacon a day increases your chance of death by 20%. I used to love bacon but not enough to raise my mortality rate by 20%. The data of this study was from 120,000 men & woman analyzed for a 30 year period by Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. Cutting red meat out altogether led to significantly better results. Replacing one serving of red meat with fish reduced mortality by 7%. More and more studies are being done that prove reducing meat increases both life span and health. Furthermore increasing plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts additionally will increase health and life span.

The AARP says The findings, published online in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that:
* A two-ounce daily serving of processed meat (one hot dog or sausage, two slices of bacon, deli meats) was associated with a 51 percent increased risk of diabetes.
* A four-ounce daily serving (the size of deck of cards) of red meat, like steak, hamburger, pork or lamb, was associated with a 20 percent increased risk of diabetes.
* Among those who ate red meat daily, substituting one serving of meat for a serving of whole grains reduced the risk of diabetes by 23 percent; replacing a serving of meats with nuts resulted in a 21 percent lower risk; and choosing a serving of low-fat yogurt or another low-fat dairy protein over red meat daily decreased the risk by 17 percent.
Substituting meat for nuts or fruits and vegetables can have a drastic reduction on the risk of serious disease. Eat what you want but don’t say “Why me?” when you get sick. We all have a choice, make yours carefully.

New Evidence – Red Meat Consumption can Raise Risk of Cancer

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.
