I do not consider myself a meat eater, I stick to fish and certain white meats but lately I am just wondering if I should give up any type of meat. But after reading the latest research, I may just keep fish on my diet, here is why!
A vegetarian diet may help protect against many conditions and illnesses including cancer. According to a new study which analyzed data from 52,700 men and women shows that those who did not eat meat had significantly fewer cancers overall. However, the researchers also found a higher rate of colorectal cancer (a disease often linked with eating red meat) among the vegetarians, this puzzled me as I thought vegetarian diets included high fiber.
This new research divided the participants into meat-eaters, fish-eaters, vegetarians and vegans. There was a significantly lower incidence of all cancers among the fish-eaters and vegetarians when compared with the meat eaters. For colorectal cancer, however, that trend was reversed.
