Yet another study showing why our “weirdo” vegan diet may not be so weird, after all.
High Meat Consumption Linked to Heightened Cancer Risk
Apparently, NIH and the AARP analyzed health data from 500K people starting in 1995-1996. They found:
“elevated risks for colorectal and lung cancer with high consumption of both meat types along with borderline higher risks for advanced prostate cancer. High red meat intake was also associated with increased risk of esophageal and liver and a borderline increased risk for laryngeal cancer. And high processed meat consumption also was associated with borderline increased risk for bladder cancer and myeloma, a kind of bone cancer.”
People always say that going vegan is “too hard.” It’s not true as our cookbook amply proves. Fighting cancer is a whole lot harder, if you ask me. I still could get cancer for any number of reasons, but at least I’ve lowered my odds by not eating meat.
