Washington Post: Too much protein could lead to an early death...
The Telegraph: March 2014
High-protein diet 'as bad for health as smoking 20 a day!
Research finds that people who eat diet rich in animal protein carry similar cancer risk to those who smoke 20 cigarettes each day
The protein problem is especially acute beyond middle age, when the body perhaps finds it more difficult to digest or cope with. Plus there is less need for protein because the body is no longer growing or needing muscle as a younger body may. As we age we tend to slow down, whereas younger people are often so active that they are using protein to renew muscle etc after exercise and other physical activities.
One theory is based on the fact that pancreatic enzymes are used to defend against cancer cells and make them more accessible to the immune system's killer cells. However, if there is a high intake of animal protein, - which is usually harder to digest, presenting a "heavy duty" workload, - then pancreatic enzymes are all otherwise employed. This means cancer cells potentially escape termination.
Note: Almost all alternative cancer treatment doctors and practitioners (or systems) strictly forbid meat and other animal protein, for this very reason. (And others)
The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health
THE CHINA STUDY reveals startling evidence which shows that...
Rats given a specific carcinogen, (aflatixin) and then fed a 20% ANIMAL PROTEIN DIET, will develop cancer 100% of the time...
The above experiments, carried out by the authors of "The China Study" T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell, followed earlier experiments conducted in India. At first, nobody believed it could be true. But further identical experiments replicated this phenomenon.
Interestingly, the protein in question is from cows milk. (casein) and...vegitable protein has no such harmful effect.
Ever since I read The China Study I have limited my intake of animal protein, because the evidence seemed quite clear. ANIMAL PROTEIN HAS A CLEAR AND OBVIOUS LINK TO PROMOTING CANCER. And many subsequent studies appear to support that evidence.
