In reply to comment: Cancer used to be rare (see in situ)


We actually eat fewer animal products per capita than we did just a few short decades ago. Consumption of saturated animal fat is down 5 to 10% since federal "nutrition guidelines" were introduced. Despite this, cancer is, as you say, becoming increasingly prevalent. Why?

What we eat plenty more of these days is sugar and grains. Cancer cells in the body feed almost exclusively on glucose, the major building block of most sugars and starches. Chronically high blood sugar is clinically linked to higher incidence of diabetes, inflammation and obesity. But of course, sugars and grains have no relation to causing cancer. Obviously it's the meat and dairy. Obviously.
