Nowadays, most searchers agree cancer is due to many factors, and not just one alone: from chemical to radiation exposure, decrease of the immune system by chronic stress, infections from viruses and bacteria, they all have been demonstrated as situations that can initiate the growth of a cancer. But one main factor, which is not often mentioned, is related to a lack of specific nutrients.
I am not talking here about the “antioxidant theory” which is based on observations (thus keeping it at the stage of a theory…) but about the lack of 3 very important vitamins: B3, B9 (folate) and B12.
In fact, these 3 nutrients have an important effect on the human body: they turn OFF any cancer promoting genes we may have in our chromosomes by a process called “methylation”. This means they provide to these bad genes with “methyl” and this stop them from “expressing themselves”; in this case, initiating a cancer.
What is VERY interesting for us on Zero Carb is by doing an animal-based diet, we got plenty of these 3 vitamins. Meat, from white to red, fish (especially the fatty ones) and eggs, these food items are the MOST important sources of vitamin B3, B9 and B12. And as if this was not enough, the ONLY source of precious vitamin B12 is from animal flesh. Yes, I know, this is sad for folks gorging thmesleves on fruits and vegetables thinking this will prevent them from developping any cancer...
So let’s say it loudly and proudly, and again and again: meat is good for human beings. In fact, meat, aside being an incredible source of nutrients containing all the essential amino acids we need, minerals, anti-oxidants (even if it is only a theory…) and numerous vitamins, it also contains POWERFULL anti-cancerous properties.
Of course, eating an only-meat diet will not give a 100% warranty you will never get cancer. But if you take care about the other causes, it is certainly not a bad choice to go for “prevention-minded” folks.
