This scientist thinks cancer can be prevented— and even cured — through diet | FOOD STUDIES IN THE NEWS | Scoop.it

T. Colin Campbell, the professor emeritus in nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University said research has proven that consumption of animal products, including meat, fish and dairy, triggers chronic diseases and impaired health and poses a greater risk than heredity or environment.

Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, October 23, 2014 6:04 AM

T. Colin Campbell is a nutritional biochemist who specializes in the effect of nutrition on long-term health. He is Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University, and well-known for his two books, Whole (2013), and The China Study (2005), which became one of America's best-selling books about nutrition.

His research shows that consumption of animal products, including meat, fish and dairy, triggers chronic diseases and impaired health and poses a greater risk than heredity or environment. He has linked casein, a protein in milk, with breast cancer. His lifelong professional focus has been cancer and nutrition, and Campbell says that our national and global fight with cancer has targeted the wrong enemy.

He believes physicians are not reliable sources of nutritional advice for their patients, as most physicians received minimal to no nutritional education in medical school and have not generally conducted investigative laboratory research themselves. “Diet can be used to prevent and reverse cancer just like it prevents and reverses heart disease,” he said. “A diet high in animal protein increases the amount of carcinogens going to the cells. It increases the enzyme MFO (mixed function oxidase) that causes increased carcinogenic activity.” In the lab, Campbell has shown that increasing consumption of animal protein alters MFO and activates cancer while decreasing consumption detoxifies cancer. A high protein diet derived from animal products increases cell replication and increases oxygen free radicals associated with cancer and aging.

Nutrition seems to be a forgotten science. Unfortunately there have been no large-scale clinical trials with humans to test the efficacy of the whole-food, plant-based diet for prevention and treatment of cancer. Edward Giovannucci, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard School of Public Health, believes diet is the leading cause of poor health in the US and worldwide. His own research findings are compatible with Campbell’s work.

However while public policy continues to be driven by commercial interests we will likely see no major changes in thinking, emphasis or policy regarding the impact of changed nutritional habits on improving health.
