Effect of animal protein consumption on prostate cancer
Anyone have reliable information on how eating animal protein affects prostate cancer? Specifically, is animal protein metabolized in such a way that prostate cancer growth promotion occurs? Thanks

I’ve adopted the Mediterranean Diet. Nearly every eating healthy report recommends this diet! Having been a big game hunter in Wyoming, it’s been a tremendous change for me. It’s been a year now and my PSA is very low. And, I’ve avoided radiation and hormone therapy treats to address a cancerous tumor. I enjoyed fish and vegetables, that has helped. I’m going ice fishing this week; I hope to catch some fish. 😊 Good job adjusting to your new dietary lifestyle. It’s definitely worth it.
Here comes that word again in moderation keyword moderation go back to the Bible and by the way That is his love letter to you so it’s very simple meat was put here for us to eat no obviously not every day but the people who are having problems everything starts in the gut you fix your gut you become alkaline no worries you learn how to fast also and your cancer will kill itself. The male clinic was supposed to reach out to me to help me with my sternum problem the top surgeon there in Scottsdale Arizona and they haven’t done it because my insurance Isn’t good enough for them even though I have Medicare and Medicaid how sad but it is what it is…….
We’re on very similar paths. I’ve found it doable. Thanks for sharing.
I tried a vegan diet but found it too difficult to get sufficient protein each day. Now I have salmon or tuna several times per week and occasionally very lean turkey. Otherwise lots of fresh vegetables.
I’ve wondered this too since I rarely consume actual beef or pork now unless it is combined with venison and that is not too often. I don’t think we’ll ever know the answer to this because in today’s world there are not enough of us to do any kind of study.
Unfortunately, I think the issue with animal protein applies to all meat, is my take on this.
Hello, very interesting information. Have you heard anything about wild-game meat? I’ve been able to eat mostly wild game.
Hi, I’ve cutback 100% on red meat and processed meats. I eat fish twice a week, chicken, beans, nuts, cold cereals with protein and lots of vegetables. I also use high quality oil in all my cooking. I’m one of those guys who pushes his lawn mover because he can. I’ve been encourage by my PSA tests, with undetectable reports, since my surgery, which was 8 months ago. (Note, cancer was found in one of eight lymph node tests. It had a Gleason score of 7.) In summary, I feel there is some merit in eliminating red meat from your diet. I think if you look around you’ll find more alternative sources for protein. Good luck.
If anyone is eating beef but needing to avoid antibiotics and such, Whole Foods is being sued for fraudulent advertising of beef it's selling.
Hi I too thought it was originally confined to red meat, but read from a number of sources that its linked to all animal protein including white meat and salt water fish. Link below. I had just eliminated red meat but now extended this to chicken and fish, although do occasionaly have fish or prawns once per week. The issue with Dairy is slightly different, that's due to the presence of the insulin growth factor hormone.
The same points are also covered at length in the book the China Study, which is an excellent read and clearly establishes the link to dairy and and animal protein not only being associated with higher incidence of cancer but also the majority of major diseases.
