Becoming a vegetarian can help you prevent cancer illness. Isn’t this a great news? Because it is so easy…and we actually have alternatives, combined vegetarian.
A vegetarian diet can help the human body to protect against several cancer types, according to a British study published recently in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, informs BBC News.
[singlepic id=735 h=200 float=left]The study was conducted on a sample of 52,700 people, and volunteers found that vegetarians have developed overall a significantly lower number of cancer diseases, compared with volunteers who ate meat.
Surprisingly, researchers found a relatively high rate of colorectal cancer – a disease associated with meat consumption – among vegetarians.
Although doctors recommend to all the patients to eat five fruits or vegetables daily to reduce the risk of cancer and other diseases, there are little evidence that show direct link between health and vegetarian diet.
The researchers divided the participants into four categories: “meat eaters”, “fish eaters”, “vegetarians” and “obsessed vegetarians”. During the monitoring period there were recorded fewer cancer cases than researchers expected, probably because the volunteers had a better health status than the majority population.

Joanne Lunn, nutrition specialist at the British Nutrition Foundation, concluded that this study reinforces the more certain scientists who believe the cancer diseases are very complex and the factors related to our lifestyle are very important in determining a person’s risk of getting cancer.
So, we advise you to look after your diet, a detoxification, in spring or autumn, won’t do you no harm, and if you can’t give up eating meat, at least try to include a large amount of vegetables and fruits in your every day “eating life”.
