CANCER PREVENTION & *Much More

by

The World Cancer Research Fund along with the American Institute for Cancer Research (WCRF/AICR) presents a Global Perspective on Food, Nutrition, Physical Activity and the Prevention of Cancer. Two hundred and ninety five (295) researchers from universities and research centers around the world are involved in this ongoing effort. This summary is based on 5 years of study. Some organizations and names familiar to us include:

Walter Willett- Dept Head- Harvard School of Public Health. He is a member of the evaluating panel and kindly sent us a copy of the report.

Junshi Chen (panel member)- Chinese Center for Disease Control, who worked with Colin Campbell on the China Study,

Barry Popkin of UNC quoted in W. Post review of major study by the National Cancer Society (see our reference # 16).

Five people from Kaiser Permanente, a major health insurer. People we know from our business days.

Marilyn Gentry President of WCRF who wrote a forward to the China Study,

Eight people from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health: Robert Lawrence head of their Center for a Livable Future is a contributor to our site.

Nine people from Penn State University- Well known to our friends at PASA

This comprehensive 500 page plus report evaluates the strength of research in thousands of research reports. All evaluated foods are categorized for INCREASED RISK or DECREASED RISK of cancer at four risk levels, Convincing, Probable, Suggestive, and Unlikely for a specific type of cancer. A few of the hundreds of foods analyzed with type of cancer and risk level are as follows:

INCREASED RISK

Meat Poultry, Fish Eggs category: (see summary on page 116)

Red Meat including Beef, Pork, Lamb and Goat- Convincing for colorectum, Suggestive for Lung, Pancreas, Stomach, Endometrium, Oesophagus

Processed Meat- Probable for Colorectal and Suggestive for Lung, Pancreas, Stomach, Oesophagus

Barbecued or grilled animal products- Suggestive for Colorectum, Stomach

Both Poultry and eggs were judged to have too little research to evaluate

DECREASED RISK

Vegetables, Fruits, Legumes, Nuts, Seeds category: (see summary on page 76)

Non-starchy vegetables- Probable for Mouth, Larynx, Oesophagus, Stomach

Allium vegetables (onions leaks etc)- Probable for Colorectal

Foods containing:

Folate- Probable for Pancreas

Carotenoids-Probable for lung

Lycopene- Probable for Prostate

Fruits- Suggestive for Nasopharynx, Pancreas, Liver, Colorectum

There are a total of 19 vegetable groups evaluated with only chilli listed under increased risk.

Fish- Suggestive for Colorectum note: this is evaluated under the meat category

Foods containing vitamin D- Suggestive for Colorectum note: same as above

Physical Exercise-Convincing for Colon- Probable for Breast (postmenopause), Endometrium,  Suggestive for Lung, Pancreas, Breast (premenopause)

Additional categories include: Dietary Supplements (pg 179)- Alcoholic drinks (pg.-157)- Drinks including Water, Fruit juices, Soft drinks, Hot drinks (pg148)- Sugars and salt (pg 141)- Fats and Oils (pg.135)-Body fatness (pg 211)-Lactation (pg. 239)-Physical Exercise (pg 199)-Milk & Dairy pg 129)

REPORTS RECOMMENDATIONS (pg 394)

Eat mostly plant food

Limit Red meat

Avoid Processed Meat

Avoid sugary drinks

Limit salt

Avoid mouldy cereal and legumes

Keep as Lean as possible

Limit alcoholic drinks

Breastfeed children

Limit supplements get your nutrients mostly from plant food

Exercise daily

*At this point in time I have the benefit of knowing that the same conclusions on red meat are to be published by the Harvard University School of Public Health for heart disease, diabetes and stroke based on decades of research results from the Nurses Health Study.

*Please read the preface to the report by Sir Michael Marmot, a cardiologist who is the panel chair. He points out that the reports conclusions coincide with the latest thinking on heart disease except in the area of alcohol consumption.

WRITERS CONCLUSION Now what is the connection between The World Cancer Report and our mission? Take a look at the CAFO location maps and understand that practically all flat land surrounding these facilities is used to grow high fertilizer need low uptake efficiency corn feed.  Meat production is not only the major cause of health decline but the major cause of the contamination and loss of the nations soil and water its most important natural resources. Please read the reports which can be found on our blog at fixingourfood.com. Reach your own conclusions
