Scientific studies show that vegetarians have less cancer than meat eaters. Meat and animal products can cause havoc in your body and create a reliable environment for cancer.
In this post, I’m going to teach you about how a healthy vegetarian diet can improve your cancer.
You learn how animal products can increase the chances of cancer. And why a plant-based diet can prevent it.
Discover the steps you need to take to change to a vegetarian diet and start living a more healthy life.
Eating meat is so common right now that a myriad of people believe that it’s essential for good health.
Vegetarian cuisines are often looked down upon. Many fear that by eating vegetarian food, you lose out on vital nutrients and minerals.
Human beings are not built to eat meat. The acid in the human stomach is 1/20 weaker than the acid found in predators like lions and tigers.
The human body digestive system has a hard time digesting meat. Meat can stay in the small intestine for long as 20-48 hours. There it can putrefy or enter the bloodstream.
Let me share a large study that examined both meat eaters and vegetarians. Can you guess what happened?
Studies show that eating a vegetarian diet is much healthier than eating meat. In the 80's Dr. T. Colin Campbell conducted The China–Cornell–Oxford Project. Campbell is a professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell.
He led the first two major studies. The study investigated the diets, lifestyle, and disease in China. Data comprised of 6,500 Chinese people in 65 rural counties.
Campbell wrote a book called "The China Study" about his findings.
The healthiest people in the study ate a more plant-based rich diet.
The human body consists about 70% of water. Therefore it's logical that a diet consisting of water is the food you should eat. Eating meat is like putting regular gas in a diesel car
When you give the body what it’s supposed to eat, it can make better use of the food and function more efficient.
Okay, that might be true. But what about protein? Don’t you need animal protein to survive? No, and here is why.
One of the biggest myths people believe is the animal protein myth. Everyone thinks it’s crucial for healthy living and that humans are meat eaters. That's not true. You and I don’t need protein as much as lions or other carnivores.
Human breast milk contains a lower protein rate compared to other animals. The amount of protein in human milk is only 2.5 g per cup. Cow milk contains 7.9 g per cup and goat milk 8.7 g per cup.
Beans, lentils, quinoa, seeds, and nuts are good protein sources. You don’t need meat to fill up the quota of protein.
I have heard several people tell me that vegetarians need to think more about what they eat. Or otherwise, they can't get all the essential vitamins.
People think that a vegetarian diet is a strange and some hippie new age thing that is dangerous to pursue.
Somehow omnivores think because they eat meat, they can have whatever they want. And by magic get all essential vitamins and nutrition.
But what about B12? Can vegetarians get that without supplements? So let us answer this question once and for all in the next section.
Vitamin B12 is something you can't get from plants.
Bacterias in the small intestines produce B12. Because the ileum absorbs the B12, it is not available for absorption.
Almost all cases of vitamin B12 deficiency are due to diseases of the intestine.
If you lack B12 then you can use supplements. You don't need large amounts of B12.
Still skeptical that a vegetarian diet is the healthiest? Let me give you some undeniable proof why humans aren’t designed to eat meat.
The strongest animals on earth like elephants, rhinos, gorillas eat a plant based diet. So why shouldn’t humans survive on such a diet? If you examine human teeth, you can see that they are not built to eat meat.
Compare them to lions or tigers, and you see a big difference. Lions have sharper canines needed for ripping apart their prey. Human's teeth are much smaller.
The rise of heart and vascular disease increased since people started to eat meat. Animal protein is one of the most acid-forming and blood-thickening foods of all. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment.
The surest way to make the body acidic is to eat any animal products like red meat, fish, eggs, chicken and so forth. A plant-based diet, turn the body more alkaline and may reverse the cancer growth.
But the most important question still is, can a vegetarian diet cure cancer? Good question. That's why I investigated the scientific literature. What you hear now might excite you.
A study on diet and cancer at Oxford University concluded that:
The overall cancer incidence rates of both the vegetarians and the non-vegetarians in this study are low compared with national rates.
Within the study, the incidence of all cancers combined was lower among vegetarians than among meat eaters, but the incidence of colorectal cancer was higher in vegetarians than in meat eaters.
Another study in Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics examined the dietary patterns of vegetarians.
They selected non-vegetarians, lacto-, pesco-, semi-vegetarians and vegans. The study included 69,120 participants.
After the research they concluded that:
Vegetarian diets seem to confer protection against cancer.
Do you feel tired all the time? Then pay close attention what I say next.
Before I became a vegetarian, I felt tired and weak most of the time. As I learned more about healthy living, I started to try one year without eating meat. Within ten days I got a boost in energy, and my digestive system worked much better.
I felt that vegetarian food had a better impact on my body than meat ever had.
If you want to help your body in the healing process, start by removing meat and animal products. Such as eggs, fish, red meat, chicken, and dairy. Try it and you feel the difference.
So let us recap what we learned today.
Scientific studies show that vegetarians have less cancer than meat eaters.
Meat and animal products can cause havoc in the body and increase the chance of cancer.
Humans aren’t built to eat meat and don’t need animal products to thrive.
So now that you know how vegetarian food can lower the risk for cancer, it's time for you to change your diet. If you don’t do it then everything you learned today will be in vain.
To start eating a healthy vegetarian diet and lower your cancer risk follow these steps.
1. Decide to remove meat and animal products like eggs, fish, red meat, chicken, and dairy
