Cambpell (1968), discussed the first publicly trusted study concerning the consumption of animal proteins and it’s risks of increasing cancer. This study emphasized the fact that, in a plan-based protein intake there‘s an absence in tumor growth rate, but in an animal-based protein diet the case is the opposite. The conclusion of this study, left us with the assumption that consuming a lot of animal proteins is similar to flipping the cancer switch on with a lack of healthy alternatives to flip it back off.
“The link between nutrition and cancer is not new, just ignored for a very long time. It is well past time that we go back to the basics in understanding this disease, both its causation and its treatment,” said Campbell.
The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM), confirmed that two glasses of milk a day increased your tenser risks by 80 percent, and 35 grams of diary proteins increases it by 32 percent. Likewise, meat consumption increases the risk by 28 percent, which is extremely present in the average Western diet (contains a high consumption in processed and junk food), and it increased your cancer risk by 200 percent.
By now, we know that diary and meat products are directly linked to the cancer risk expansion, thus one of the healthiest decisions ones can take to prevent cancer is to follow a plant-based diet, and give up animal based products.
Dr. Campbell and PCRM both highlight the idea that following a diet rich in legumes, greens, vegetables and grains (The basic plant-based vegan diet), will provide us with plenty of proteins and plant-based nutrients to fight cancer cells. Sports and a healthy diet are also a big, major factor in preventing obesity which can also cause cancer, diabetes and heart diseases.
