A High Protein Diet’s Effect On Cancer

Research has shown that low protein diets inhibit cancer growth and that high protein diets promote cancer growth. Researchers were able to ‘switch cancer growth on and off’ by simply adjusting the amount of protein consumed in the controlled diets.

Researchers also found that Aflatoxin (a toxin which causes cancer) was unable to initiate cancer in people with low protein diets.

The protein which was found to promote cancer growth the most was Casein. Casein is a protein which makes up 87% of cow’s milk protein. This protein promoted all stages of cancer.

However, proteins which did not promote cancer growth were, in fact, proteins which came from plants.

It has been proven that by reducing the amount of protein in your diet, you can reduce your:

1) Risk of getting cancer

2) Cancer cell growth

It’s recommended that you intake 5% – 10% of your daily calories from proteins. Fruits and vegetables, on average, consist of 5% – 10% protein. So, if you were eating just fruits and vegetables, you would be getting sufficient levels of protein in your diet. But don’t take my word for it.  Visit www.nutritionfacts.org for more information. Or listen to the advice given by many leading medical experts: Dr.Neal Barnard, Dr. McDoughall, Dr. Greger etc.

  1. I have been eating a plant based diet for 8 years and based on how good I feel virtually every day, the fact that I am rarely sick and that I see many of my friends and family (who eat the standard American diet) sick all of the time, In fact, I am almost 23 years older than my youngest sister who has horrible eating habits and she is sick all the time! I have no doubt that this information is accurate! Eating life instead of death and trauma also has a way of making every day a good day! I am always sad that animal testing continues to prove what many of us have known for years – eat non-processed, plant based, whole foods for a healthy planet and a healthy body!
