Is Grass-Fed Beef Okay To Include In a Cancer Diet?

Dr. Malkmus, In January of this year I had a 1-inch cancerous  tumor removed from my colon along with 12 lymph nodes, one of which was cancerous…We were told that they probably did get all of the cancer and ordered a CAT scan which showed nothing, but said that didn’t necessarily mean I was clear of cancer.

At that point we decided to change my diet to a vegan diet until I could find a source of organic grass-fed beef.

We have bought a Norwalk press, a Vita-Mix blender, and a rebounder. I have read many books and must say that I am actually confused about the meat factor. Right now I find myself eating very little animal protein…I tell you all this because I am concerned about my diet and need some nutritional advice.

Rev. Malkmus Responds

I appreciate your email and you seeking advice from Hallelujah Acres.

Emily, this is a matter of great concern if one desires to recover from or prevent cancer.

Our research reveals that it doesn’t matter if the animal source foods are organic or not – its impact on cancer is the same. Organic animal sourced foods feed cancer in the same way as commercially produced does.

Let me help clear up some confusion regarding animal source foods.

The protein and fats found in animal source foods (both meat and dairy) are the primary cause of most diseases – especially cancer. We believe that it is imperative that all meat and dairy be eliminated if one wants to support the body’s innate self-healing.

Dr. T. Colin Campbell found he could turn cancer growth on and off by simply varying the amount of animal protein in the diet of lab animals.

Dr. Campbell’s book, The China Study is an excellent reference as to the roll diet plays in disease development. The study includes almost 50 years of research on the relationship between diet and disease.

    George, it seems as though you didn’t really answer the question. She wasn’t asking about organic vs. commercial, but grassfed (no grain) vs. organic/commercial. Some research I’ve read suggests that even the smallest amt. of grain in a ruminants diet does some bad things to their milk/meat (organic or no), whereas a 100% grassfed diet (the way God intended for them) is beneficial to them and us (as we in moderation consume their ‘products’). I’d like to hear your findings from research done w/ milk/meat from animals on a truly 100% grass-fed diet (of course the grass being on lush, nutrient-dense organic or chemical-free pastures).

    One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind. He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God. (Romans 14:5-6) I believe that the time in which we live in man has altered so many of what should be natural. The air and the water are not pure any more, there are way too many choices for foods now. We need to go back to the way it was. The old Testament also says we should cook our meat over an open fire and not leave any of it. If one chooses to eat meat then it should be in very small portions a couple times a week if any. There are good properties in meat which helps us. But then you have to choose wisely where its raised and what it eats. Even our animals are subject to the impurities of this time just as we are.

    This is the law regarding the animal, and the bird, and every living thing that moves in the waters, and everything that swarms on the earth, to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the edible creature and the creature which is not to be eaten. (Leviticus 11:46-47)

    Dr. Malkmus answered the question completely. To say it a different way; it doesn’t matter if the beef is grass fed, it still contributes to sickness. He also provides the research reference to back up his answer: The China Study, which happens to be “The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted”.
