Why Nutrition Immunology does not support animal food?
Animal foods stimulate the human body to secrete prostaglandin II, which inhibits immune function and increase the risk of cancer.
Therefore, nutritional immunology only promotes plant foods which increase immunity.
Should stop eating cured meat?
According to World Health Organisation report, cured meat and red meat increase the chance of developing colorectal cancer due to nitrites. Nitrites have been used to preserve the colour of meat and also inhibit the growth of bacteria. Nitrites will breakdown into nitrosamines in stomach which is cancerous to our body, thus increase the risk of stomach cancer.
Consuming more vegetable rich in Vitamin C and phytonutrients can block the formation of nitrosamines in stomach. Marinated meat with salt or some kind of acid will stimulated the growth of cancer cells. Studies have shown that people who have been diagnosed with stomach cancer, nasal and paranasal sinus cancers are positively associated with the consumption of salted meat, pickled and preserved vegetables.
Why do I need variety in my vegetables?
There are a wide variety of phytochemicals, antioxidants, and polysaccharides, and each performs different functions to enhance and protect your health. Each vegetable has its own unique qualities, and each contains different phytochemicals, antioxidants, and polysaccharides.
Let me give you a brief definition of these helpful substances:
Phytochemical: It can deter one of the processes that can cause cancer, thus, helping protect you from cancer.
Antioxidant: It can destroy free radicals, prevent illness, and help you look younger.
Polysaccharide: It will directly boost your immune system.
