Is it true that red meat can cause cancer?

  • Red meat has been found by UK studies and the US government to cause heart failure.

    You can google the 21 year old kid who wanted to prove he could look ripped with muscle by eating an all beef diet. He died of heart failure.

    Fish or vegetables provide protein like red meat and are heart friendly.

    Nope. They help muscle repair.

    So anyone want to play spot the vegan?

    Current research shows that there are certain chemicals in red and processed meats – both added and naturally occurring – that cause these foods to be carcinogenic. For example, when a chemical in red meat called haem is broken down in the gut, N-nitroso chemicals are formed and these have been found to damage the cells that line the bowel, which can lead to bowel cancer. These same chemicals also form when processed meat is digested. In addition, the nitrite and nitrate preservatives used to preserve processed meat produce these N-nitroso chemicals and can lead to bowel cancer.
