Plant-based diets may help rheumatoid arthritis by decreasing exposure to an inflammatory compound found in animal products.
Cancer may use a molecule found in animal products to trick our immune system into feeding it with inflammation.
Bacterial endotoxins are another reason why animal products may trigger an inflammatory immune reaction. See The Leaky Gut Theory of Why Animal Products Cause Inflammation; The Exogenous Endotoxin Theory; and Dead Meat Bacteria Endotoxemia. For more on arthritic joint disorders, see Diet & Rheumatoid Arthritis and Preventing Arthritis. For the role saturated animal fat may play in heart disease and cancer, see Blocking the First Step of Heart Disease; Breast Cancer Survival, Butterfat, and Chicken; and Trans Fat, Saturated Fat and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero. What does this video have to do with the previous few about Cancer as an Autoimmune Disease? You’ll see in the next video, How Tumors Use Meat to Grow: Xeno-Autoantibodies.
