[Publisher’s Note: Although I agree with the author about the premise of his article, I would make one caveat. I do believe that antibiotic and steroid laden meat of any kind consumed on a regular basis should be avoided as a health hazard and possibly even a cause of cancer. If the meat is sourced from grass feed, non-antibiotic, and non-steroidal sources, and if consumed in moderation with vegetable foods is a great source of nutrition. —Ben Taylor]

(UtopiaSilver.com) In yet another wrong-minded study condemning red meat, researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) found that feeding a non-human sugar compound (Neu5Gc) found in other mammals to mice that were engineered to be deficient in the sugar greatly increased cancer risk.

The research team had hypothesized that eating red meat triggers the immune system to fight Neu5Gc, causing inflammation and identified chronic inflammation as a major risk factor for cancer. To test their hypothesis, the researchers engineered mice to be lacking in Neu5Gc like humans are. When the mice were fed the sugar, they developed inflammation. Tumor formation increased five times over and the Neu5Gc gathered in the tumors.
At the conclusion of the study, the scientists reported that This is the first time we have directly shown that mimicking the exact situation in humans feeding non-human Neu5Gc and inducing anti-Neu5Gc antibodies increases spontaneous cancers in mice.
Where does one even begin to address such bologna? Earth to medical scientists: toxins and the inflammation they cause are what causes cancer, not red meat and that is likely what your study just proved once again. And yes, sugar does gather in cancer cells – after all, it is part of the cancer process for cells to stop taking in oxygen and begin taking in sugar as the cells revert to a primitive form of respiration which uses sugar instead of oxygen to produce energy.
