Cancer is a disease of civilization. It is the end result of health-destroying living and eating habits, which result in a biochemical imbalance and physical and chemical irritation of the tissues. In addition to an abundance of carcinogens in today’s food, – water, air and environment, carcinogenic substances are also produced within the body as a result of deranged metabolism. Many biological and naturopathic doctors, both those who are active presently, as well as many great pioneers of the past, notably Drs. Bircher-Benner, Duncan Bulkley, A. Vogel, Max Gerson, Kristine Nolfi, Ragnar Berg, Are Waerland, Werner Zabel, J. H. Tilden, Alice Chase, to name a few, believed that faulty diet can be a basic cause of cancer. Based on their own extensive practice and by studying the eating habits of cancer-free natives and peoples around the world, their conclusions emphatically pointed to the fact that in addition to well-known environmental carcinogens, such as smoking, chemical poisons in foods and environment, etc., the cancer incidence is in direct proportion to the amount of animal proteins, particularly meat, in the diet. Racial groups and nations whose diet contains less meat, show less cancer incidence than groups consuming high-meat diets. Hospital records show that Seventh Day Adventists, Mormons and Navajo Indians, who eat little or no meat, suffer far less from cancer than the average meat-eating Americans. Recently, a link between excessive meat-eating and cancer has been explained by Dr. Willard J. Visek, research scientist at Cornell University. Dr. Visek says that the high-protein diet of Americans is linked to the high incidence of cancer in the U.S. The villain, according to Dr. Visek, is ammonia, the carcinogenic by-product of meat digestion.Our actual daily protein requirement is only between 20 and 30 grams, as shown by numerous studies around the world. Protein eaten in excess of the actual need cannot be properly digested or utilized and acts in the body as a poison and carcinogen. In addition, over consumption of Protein taxes the pancreas and causes chronic deficiency of pancreatic enzymes, which are required for proper protein metabolism.
