If you avoid animal products you definitely improve your health and it is most likely you will have long healthy life.
- Statistics in the US show that 1 in 2 men and women will develop cancer due to meet consumption. It is expected that by 2060 the number of people with cancer will double. One way to avoid such situation and prevent cancer you will need to avoid unprocessed plant foods.
Scientists in 2005 have proven that eliminating cancer cells is eight times more effective when used blood from people who are not consuming meat, in comparison with those who regularly eat meat. To reach such conclusion it required extensive studies and experiments.
Test conveyed by Collective Evolution have given different diets to two groups of people. These groups needed to follow the diet for a year and afterwards blood samples were taken. The test was done by putting the two samples of blood into cancer cells in order to determine which blood cells are more effective in suppressing cancer growth in the prostate.
The study goes to state:
Experimental group patients were prescribed an intensive lifestyle program that included a vegan diet supplemented with soy (1 daily serving of tofu plus 58 gm of a fortified soy protein powdered beverage), fish oil (3 gm daily), vitamin E (400 IU daily), selenium (200 msg daily) and vitamin C (2 gm daily), moderate aerobic exercise (walking 30 minutes, 6 days weekly), stress management techniques (gentle yoga based stretching, breathing, meditation, imagery and progressive relaxation for a total of 60 minutes daily) and participation in a 1-hour support group once weekly to enhance adherence to the intervention. 10% of the diet was predominantly fruits, vegetables, whole grains (complex carbohydrates), legumes and soy products, low in simple carbohydrates and with approximately 10% of calories from fat. 11% of the diet is intensive but palatable and practical. In earlier studies most patients were able to adhere to this diet for at least 5 years.
Blood samples taken from vegans have proven again that it is eight times more powerful in eliminating cancer cell multiplication. It is important to mention that these patients have gone through many other methods that include changing lifestyle in order to affect the growth of cancer cells.
Scientists have also researched the impact of consumption of plants in preventing cancer development or growth of cancer cells. For instance, research proves that in the first fourteen days of consumption a plant based diet combined with exercises strengthens the immune system which prevents multiplication and growth of cancer. The study furthermore reveals that this is very important diet if women have been diagnosed with breast cancer. They have taken examples of blood from women that have breast cancer before starting the fourteen day diet.
After those 14 days, their blood was sampled again and was found to completely slow down cancer-growth, as well as strengthen the blood’s ability to eliminate cancer cells effectively.
A separate experiment had been conducted, because scientists wanted to see how much of the effect of exercise had in limiting the growth of cancer, and whether or not the plant-based diet was mostly responsible for a defense boost. Results had found that exercise does weaken the growth of cancer cells, while a plant-based diet has twice the amount of power to eliminate cancer cells from the body.
This is why it is extremely important to make changes to your lifestyle if you want to have healthy long life. All studies that showed that vegetarian diet impact cancer growth, it is also important to have in mind that by not eating meat you are reducing the carbon output and save animals lives.
Avoiding animal products isn’t only just good for the planet, it also improves your odds of living a health, long life.
