Red meat has been related to cancer for decades and according to a new research, the reason behind higher instances of cancer with red meat consumption has been revealed. The body views red meat as a foreign invader and gives rise to a toxic immune response, according to research team. Due to immune response, antibodies are produced that cause inflammation and could ultimately lead to cancer.
Health experts recommend consuming only two and a half ounces of red meat a day, which is equal to one lamb chop, two slices of roast beef or three slices of ham a day. Neu5Gc, a non-human sugar, which is found in red meat, leads to inflammation and cancer development in rodents.
