Besides the obvious negative effects of lactose intolerance and dairy allergy, scientists have also identified more than 100 different types of viruses or infectious DNA molecules in bovine meat and milk that can potentially cause human cancers.According to the American Cancer Society, as of 2022, colorectal cancer (colon cancer for short) is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both American men and in women.According to epidemiological evidence, not every cattle species’ beef and milk can lead to colon cancer.
For example, consumption of Zebu (from humped cattle) and Yak meat seems to be able to substantially reduce the risk of colon cancer.On the contrary, the consumption of meat and milk from dairy cattle (Eurasian taurines) seems to increase the risk for colon cancer, because in countries with high incidences of this cancer, dairy cattle are the most prevalent.
And in the United States, breast cancer is the second most common cancer for women, accounting for one in three new cases annually.
The high risk regions for breast cancer are North America, most European countries, Australia, and Argentina.
People’s consumption of milk and dairy products from cows (Eurasian dairy cattle), especially at an early age, is suggested to be one of the main risk factors of breast cancer in their later life.
The major risk for breast cancer may originate from a systemic infection by BMMFs in the patients’ toddler years through milk consumption.One consequence of the above breast cancer development is that BMMF-containing dairy products will not be identified as risks by studies conducted when the subjects are much older.
Specifically, if BMMFs can be detected during the decades-long incubation period, in which symptoms of breast cancer haven’t appeared, individuals who are particularly at risk can be identified, and preventative and early therapeutic measures can be taken to reduce the risk of breast cancer in their later life.As aforementioned, early detection of BMMFs could identify individuals that are particularly at risk for certain types of cancer, such as colorectal cancer, so they can seek preventive measures and minimize their risk of developing these cancers.Present recommendations for the prevention of BMMF-related cancers include avoiding consumption of red meat (especially from Eurasian dairy cattle) and milk, avoiding obesity, and using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g. aspirin)
Specifically, daily intake of such drugs can reduce the risk for colon cancer by 63 percent, breast cancer by 39 percent, prostate cancer by 39 percent, and lung cancer by 36 percent
