Doctors and scientists provide yet another
reason to replace meat in your diet with high-fiber,
plant-based foods. During the recent International
Research Conference on Food, Nutrition and Cancer,
scientists discussed the link between high-fiber
diets and reduced cancer risk. Many past studies
reveal that diets high in fruits, vegetables, and nuts
are associated with lower rates of colon cancer. Today
researchers are shifting focus to investigate harmful
effects of diets high in meat.
Dr. Stephen O’Keefe of the University of Pittsburgh
recently examined the high incidence of colon cancer
among African Americans, whose meat intake is higher
than the national average. The study focused
on bacteria that produces carcinogenic by-products
when meat intake is high.
