Does Eating Meat Cause Cancer?

Melinda D. Teston

Experts have found out that if you eat the meat of an animal that has cancer, the cancer will be transmitted to the body of the human. There are several studies that have proven the fact that cancer can be transmitted from animal to human and vice versa.

Apparently, eating meat is not as healthy as you thought, especially if that meat came from an animal with cancer. However, some people argued that if the meat is tested and negative for cancer, then it can be consumed safely. However, experts do not seem to agree.

Eating meat can still increase your risk for developing cancer because of many reasons and facts. Eating meat can predispose a person to rectal cancer because meat lacks fiber and fiber is essential in the diet. Aside from that, meat also contains large amounts of urokinase protein. This urokinase protein can cause degeneration of the metabolic function of the cells in the body. This protein can also increase the workload of the kidneys which can cause stress and even destroy the kidneys overtime.

For those who love to eat grilled or roasted meat, it can produce carcinogens which cause cancer such as brain tumors, stomach cancer, and cancer of the blood.

Other than cancer, eating meat can also predispose a person to develop certain diseases such as stroke and heart diseases. This is the main reason why people who are diagnosed with heart disease are found to be fond of eating meat rather than healthier food options such as fruits and vegetables.

Although meat tastes good, it may not be good for your health especially if you are just eating pure meat alone, without any fruits or vegetables or other foods. A healthy and balanced diet is primarily composed of foods from the different food groups in moderate amounts. It is very important to eat foods in moderation because anything that is excessive is bad.

Aside from a healthy diet, a regular exercise is also recommended. You can try out various gentle exercises at home through the convenient use of a Swiss ball.
