Animal Protein & Toxins
A new study adds to the body of evidence citing health problems associated with the consumption of animal products. Researchers point to a molecule present in meat called N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) that increases susceptibility to food poisoning. Funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Australia's National Health and Medical Research Council, the study reveals that the molecule helps a toxin from certain types of E. coli to target human cells.
Ironically, humans may set themselves up for an increased risk of illness from this kind of E. coli bacteria present in contaminated red meat or dairy, because these very same products have high-levels of Neu5Gc," said researcher Ajit Varki from the University of California, San Diego. "The Neu5Gc molecule is absorbed into the body, making it a target for the toxin produced by E. coli." The researchers report that sites where Neu5Gc has been incorporated into the human body are related to the binding of a bacterial toxin, resulting in serious food-poisoning and other symptoms.
Additionally, results from the NIH indicate that high intake of red and processed meats is associated with a 20% increase in the risk of different cancers.
