How reliable are the connexions between a healthy diet and cancer?

Question by spGaara: How reliable are the connexions between a healthy diet and cancer?
There are so many investigations claiming they found a cause of cancer (cell phone radiation, unhealthy diet, smoking etc) but I also keep hearing that there’s no cause for cancer found yet. My mon keeps telling me I need to eat healthy or I’ll get cancer, is she right?

Your mom is trying to tell you to eat the right things in order to be healthy. Your mom wants the best for you.

    There are very, very few proven connections between diet and cancer.

    A diet high in red and processed meat is a major risk factor for colorectal cancers. A diet high in meat and fat is thought to possibly increase the risk of pancreatic cancer. A diet high in red and processed meats is thought to possibly increase the risk of stomach cancer (as is a diet high in salt).

    A diet high in dairy is thought to be a possible risk factor in prostate cancer, and a diet high in fat may be a risk factor for some other cancers.

    All these are risk factors, some of them not even conclusively known risk factors. A risk factor is not a cause.

    That really is about it for any known connection between meat and the 200+ diseases that come under the umbrella title of ‘cancer’.

    A healthy diet is always important, but it won’t stop you developing cancer. Cancer affects the healthy and unhealthy alike, and you are correct – nobody knows what causes cancer

    Ultimatly, what we put in out body is what causes most sicknesses. Non-organic companies use so much hormones and other crap to grow vegetables, fruits, and animals faster in an unhealthy way to speed up the process and make more money. It’s sick. Get organic food always!
