r/Health – Thousands of cancer diagnoses tied to a poor diet, study finds

No, but it’s slightly messy English though not improper:

The researchers evaluated seven dietary factors: a low intake of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and dairy products and a high intake of processed meats, red meats and sugary beverages, such as soda.

These are cancer risk factors. A low intake of whole grains is a cancer risk.

And we know why:

“Previous studies provide strong evidence that a high consumption of processed meat increases the risk of colorectal cancer and a low consumption of whole grains decreases the risk of colorectal cancer,”


The researchers found that colon and rectal cancers had the highest number and proportion of diet-related cases, at 38.3%.

There is nothing new here but it is good to have reinforcing evidence since I am again tuning up my diet.

Turns out your body does not like having red meat in your colon while being starved of cellulose. Epithelial cells, especially squamous cells which produce mucous, need to be fed during high-intensity work, which digesting red meat certainly is.

Epithelial cells feed on the the by-products of the same type of bacteria which digests cellulose in the guts of termites.
