“The study also researched Asian men in Japan, who generally have a lower death rate from prostate cancer than men in North America as they eat healthier diets.”
Because of beef, chicken, and pork - all contain too much anti-biotic and other chemicals, growth hormones, etc...The meat industry in the US is vile! On top of that, most Citizens don’t have proper nutrition - without a healthy gut - cancer will grow in every life form.
People in the U.S. are walking around almost dead...ask a person from another country what their meat taste like compared to the U.S. - there’s a BIG difference - most describe it as having a medicine smell and taste. Don’t want to die from cancer - stop eating meat, dairy, & sugars..replace it with veg’s, fruits, grains, and almond milk - plus large amounts of water! You will drop weight and feel so much better...that’s not s diet secret you have to spend $$$ on!
I suspect the levels of antibiotics and hormones in poultry, eggs and pork are higher and also less regulated in most Asian, African and South American countries than western ones.
Doctor said I would live longer if I gave up red meat, cigars and whiskey. It would sure seem longer.
100% true, but try getting that through to people on FR between posting their next bacon thread. They get too angry and take it too personally.
Are you daft? Do you realize that the incidence of thyroid conditions and cancers have risen exponentially in the last 40 years due to the overuse of soy products in our foods? Almost everything you eat today has soy in it, and what's the primary source of protein for vegetarians in the US? SOY!
I have non-Hashimoto's thyroiditis. It runs on both sides of my family, but since I was diagnosed 8 years ago, I cut back on soy significantly and went from being on the highest daily dose of levothyroxine to the lowest. Vegetarianism and not eating meat was LITERALLY KILLING ME!
Vegetarians and vegans disgust me in the same way that haughty Liberals make me irate. There's really no such thing as a "one size fits all" meal plan for anyone. I thrive on lean meats (pork, chicken, fish, beef, goat, etc.) and I consume a lot of vegetables and fruits as well.
While I agree that we, as a society, have overused and abused sugar, telling us to give up meat is like telling a shark to eat kelp. You ever looked at your teeth? Human beings are omnivores. We have sharp incisors and canines to rip and tear flesh, and we have large, flat molars to grind meats and fibers from vegetables. Neanderthals didn't survive on vegetables alone. As a matter of fact, during the long winters, they'd need the fat and protein from meat to stay warm and energized. That's not something vegetables alone can provide.
You only need to look at and understand human physiology to understand that we are both hunters AND gatherers. You can't put off an entire division of food (meat) because the mass produced markets taint the supplies. If you have land, invest in livestock. Raise them on your own with food you choose to feed them. A tenderloin from a freshly-slaughtered pig is bright red and tastes like Heaven when braised in butter and rosemary. A rack of ribs from a heifer you raised from birth is like a gift from God.
Just like the vegetarians are raging against Monsanto for their GMO BS, so should meat eaters rage against the meat industry for all the crap they put in our food. We want the same outcomes, friend, but to sit here and espouse a universal truth about human dietary functionality on a diet of only vegetables and fruits is laughable and dangerous. It doesn't suit everyone's lifestyle and has no longitudinally proven health benefits over a diet inclusive of lean meats.
It’s not the meat, it’s the sugar. Sugar feeds cancer.
Sounds like a great diet. Wine and brandy come from fruit, and whiskey and beer come from grains. Almond milk probably tastes great when mixed with gin.
It's the meat from factory farm raised animals and its lack of omega-3, that is bad for you.
Is "medicine smell and taste" like the sound of wet grass?
