Red Meat Causes Cancer

After surviving the unsurvivable, cardiomyopathy in 1988, I had a second chance to get it right, from a food and exercise standpoint. Immediately I stopped eating the meat of partially decomposed barn animals raised in a Factory Farm and ceased eating greasy deep-fried things.
The world worships meat and in some countries, without meat, people would starve. In that situation, eating meat to survive is acceptable. Their animals were fed the way the Universe had planned and our Earth Suit can utilize its composition.
Man has eaten meat since his creation. Meat has been socialized so intensely, that the majority of earthly citizens would rather die than stop eating meat. Live and let live. When I am giving one of my speeches, I never tell people to stop eating meat. That's a very personal decision.
When, however, you read headlines from USA today that research links fat to cancer, you must perk up and take note. The report from the American Institute for Cancer Research and the World Cancer Research Fund found that every 1.7 ounces of processed meat consumed per day increases your risk of colorectal cancer by 21%. Eating processes meat has also been connected to breast cancer. We should have a 'walk' for proactive prevention as well as for the cure.
This is a wake up call for those who eat beef, pork, and lamb, routinely. Meat is not macho, it's what's rotting in your colon. Why? Meat does not contain fiber.
Excess body fat from meat increases the risk of cancer of the colon, kidney, pancreas, and esophagus, and post-menopausal breast cancer.
The bottom line: Elvis Presley passed away with 35 attractive pounds of impacted fecal matter in his colon because of his food choices. How charming. He died of drug abuse Heart Attack on the porcelain throne, however he made it onto a US mailing stamp.
The report says about a third of the cancers could be avoided with weight control, regular physical activity and healthful eating choices. Amen, Brothers and Sisters.
The dogs want lunch, so I better feed them as they are eye-balling the cat.
Happy Trails
