When it comes to meat, everyone must be salivating.

After all, what garlic white meat, spicy chicken, mutton kebabs, sweet and sour ribs, braised meat... Seven emotions and six desires, after all, can't stop the desire for meat.

However, although the meat is delicious, it is often heard that eating too much meat will cause three highs, and eating too much red meat will cause cancer

(don't listen, son of a bitch chants.)

Do we really give up meat for our health? Can you eat meat happily?

If you don't eat meat, you will grow old easily

When formulating dietary guidelines for residents, most countries believe that residents should include an appropriate amount of meat in their diet.

As meat is rich in folic acid and vitamin B12, both of which are the most important coenzymes in the process of DNA synthesis, if the human body lacks these two nutrients, it will lead to the disorder of cell DNA synthesis, which will lead to the skin more prone to water loss and aging.

At the same time, meat not only contains fat, but also protein, which is the most important nutrient element in muscle synthesis. If protein is lacking, it will not only easily cause nutritional imbalance, but also lead to muscle recession and skin relaxation.

Although eating meat is good, these two kinds of meat can cause cancer

First, processing meat

Who has classified processed meat that has been treated by smoking, fermentation, preservation and enhanced taste as a class I carcinogen, and pointed out that long-term consumption of processed meat products may induce rectal cancer.

Common processed meat products in life mainly include ham sausage, sausage, bacon, bacon, dried meat, canned meat, meat sauce, etc.

The reason why processed meat products cause cancer is that there are nitrites in them. Some nitrites are added to meat as raw materials, mainly for sterilization and prolonging the shelf life. Some nitrites are transformed during processing.

After nitrite enters the human body, it will be metabolized to produce nitrosamine, which is a carcinogen and will greatly increase the risk of oral cancer, esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, rectal cancer, liver cancer and other cancers.

Of course, it doesn't matter if you eat it occasionally, which doesn't mean that eating processed meat will definitely lead to cancer.

However, when choosing processed meat products, try to choose products produced by regular manufacturers, because the additives used by regular manufacturers basically strictly follow the national food safety standards.   

Second, red meat

Who classifies all red meat, including pork, beef and mutton, as class 2A carcinogens, and believes that the occurrence of prostate cancer, breast cancer, gastric cancer, colon cancer and other cancers are related to the intake of red meat.

The reason why red meat can cause cancer is that the saturated fatty acids in red meat can inhibit the secretion of insulin, and stimulate the penetration of bile acids into the duodenum, which is easy to form secondary bile acids such as lithocholic acid and deoxycholic acid. These substances will be further transformed into carcinogens.

In addition, the fat content of red meat is usually relatively high, long-term large intake will increase the risk of obesity, and obesity is also one of the culprits of cancer.

Should we give up these two kinds of meat from now on?

Of course not!

In fact, this is an old topic often talked about before the return.

Cancer itself is a product determined by many factors. It is not just eating a certain food, but drinking a certain water may cause cancer.

Whether it's red meat or processed meat, we do find a relationship between them and cancer, but this relationship is not an absolute cause and effect. I'm afraid there are no authoritative data to prove that how much you eat will cause cancer for the time being.

Therefore, eating too much or not eating any kind of meat at all is not conducive to health. The most important thing is to eat in moderation.

After all, the nutritional value of meat is still very high, and it also has many benefits to human health. Therefore, the value of meat cannot be completely denied.

If you want to eat meat at ease, first of all, it is recommended to choose lean meat as much as possible to reduce fat intake.

Secondly, we should pay attention to the consumption of good food, do not eat too much for a long time, and try to choose the way of steaming and stewing to cook red meat, which can not only avoid destroying the nutrients in red meat, but also reduce the amount of oil and salt added.
