You have probably all heard that red meat can lead to cancer, but it seems that there is a reason behind all this, and that has finally been revealed.
That is, it was discovered that the root of all this is sugar, according to a study by the University of California, San Diego. When it comes to eating red meat, humans are those with an increased risk of cancer due to other carnivores eat meat naturally and without harmful side effects.
There is a unique sugar Neu5Gc name found in most mammals, but not humans. This sugar triggers an immune response that causes inflammation. It can be found in red meat (pork and other animals), cow’s milk and some cheeses.
This study was conducted on mice and all evidence linking cancer Neu5Gc was circumstantial or indirect predicted from experimental setups. Scientists said it was the first time that mimicked the exact situation in humans through the food and non-human Neu5Gc induction of anti-Neu5Gc antibodies. This increased spontaneous cancer in mice.
Human bodies are unable to naturally produce Neu5Gc. So, when absorbed in the tissues, which is seen as a foreign invader which leads to activation of our immune system and resulting in inflammation.
If the immune system is subject to this type of sugar, the situation worsens, because it will often lead to chronic inflammation. Cancer is the result of this inflammation, over time. This means that people who eat red meat regularly suffer certainly stronger than those who eat red meat only occasionally reaction. This shows that reducing red meat, health is enhanced.
People should avoid eating red meat in order to prevent inflammation or cancer. This is because people are not strict carnivores, so they are not able to Neu5Gc.
