For today's issue of Dear Mark, I answer a few questions. The first was an e-mail with a new study showing a link between chicken eating and various cancers (melanoma, prostate cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma) in UK adults. What do I think of the study? Second, did I really tell people not to neuter or castrate their dogs? Third, dogs can take collagen powder, and if not, are there alternatives? Lastly, I would like to comment on the temporary feeding.
What do you think about this study, which shows a correlation between chicken consumption and cancer?
Okay, let's do that.
First, the link was not between chicken and cancer, but between chicken and certain cancers. The peculiarity suggests that there may be something going on here.
Look, I love a good roast chicken. There is almost nothing better than crispy chicken skin.
However, today's birds have a very high proportion of omega-6 fatty acids. Your normal, battery-fed bird – that's what most people eat in these studies – feeds on soybean oil, corn by-products, and other junk that's rich in omega-6 fats. These dietary fats are absorbed into the tissue of the animal, which is absorbed into your dinner and into your body.
Most of the cancers in question were previously mechanistically associated with elevated omega-6 levels and / or decreased omega-3 levels.
Melanoma and other skin cancers?
On study from Australia – the country of skin cancer – found that adults with the highest DHA and EPA serum levels had the lowest "cutaneous p53 expression". If your skin is at risk of being damaged by the sun, p53 expression is upregulated to protect it. The fact that p53 expression was low indicates that the skin was not in danger. The omega-3 fatty acids protect the skin and reduce the "perceived" (and real) danger. Acute EPA supply to reduce the inflammatory reaction of the skin to UV radiation.
One problem with excess omega-6 fats is that they displace DHA and EPA from the serum and cell membranes. The more omega-6s in your diet, the less DHA and EPA you have to lay around to protect yourself from the sun.
Anti – inflammatory omega – 3 fatty acids (included in seafood and fish oil) are generally connected Lowering prostate inflammation rates and a less carcinogenic environment; Omega-6 fatty acids can trigger the progression of the disease. A 2001 Study of over 6,000 Swedish men realized that the people who ate the most fish had dramatically less prostate cancer than those who ate the least. Another Study from New Zealand found that men with the highest levels of DHA (an omega-3 value found in fish) lowered prostate cancer risk by 38% compared to men with the lowest DHA.
I have not seen solid evidence of one kind or another in non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, but The intake of Omega-3 is associated with a lower risk, If this is a causal relationship and too much Omega-6 with your omega-3 fatty acids is competing for physiological supremacy in the body, it may increase the risk of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. But this is not a sure thing.
I could not find the study mentioned in the article, but according to the article, the scientists focused only on "meat consumption patterns". They did not look at other foods or nutrients – just what kind of meat they ate. In that case, they would not have controlled the intake of French fries, mayo and other junk foods often eaten with chicken.
British eat more chicken than ever before, and so are they move away more and more from large family chicken meals – roasts and the like – to individual chicken meals – pasta and chips.
The fastest growing fast food in the UK is roast chicken. This is chicken breaded in flour and fried in rancid vegetable oil, then served with chips and doused with mayonnaise.
Well, I'm not going to say you should eat chicken with every meal. Red meat, fish and eggs contain much more nutrients than chicken and contain much less omega-6 fatty acids. But I will not shy away from a good fried chicken or even a chicken chili, especially if I use well reared, preferably reared chickens.
I'm sorry, are you suggesting people NOT to neuter their pets?!? Do I read an article in The Onion? Is it the 1st of April? What the hell is going on ??? Dear Bob Barker is rolling in his grave and thousands of dogs and cats are unnecessarily euthanized today (and tomorrow and the next day and the next …) because there are just too many of them.
No, I only recommend that people read the literature and understand that neutering can have unwanted health effects, especially if you do it too soon.
Most experts agree that repairing the dog after stopping the growth is fairly safe and reduces the risk of later health problems. That's a good compromise for me.
And I do not talk to the masses. I speak with the readers, who are generally a reliable, conscientious bunch.
Even a vasectomy is a good option that only a few people consider, but more vets offer.
Mark, would it hurt or be of any use if I dropped a shovel of collagen on my dog's raw meat and vegetable patty?
You could definitely do it. Just keep in mind that some dogs react poorly to protein powder. A raw chicken foot is enough if you want to try it. I also saw freeze-dried tendons in pet stores.
After a few years of IDF, where I mainly ate between midday and 8, I recently tried to feed early (eTRF), and it seems to work well for me. I did it under the influence of this guy's posts: https://www.patreon.com/CaloriesProper/posts
And I learned from him in an MDA article …
Yes, some people for whom intermittent fasting does not seem to work may want to switch to an early morning meal system. The vast majority of people who omit meals every day abstain from breakfast. That way it's easier, you can just drink a coffee and drive on. But not everyone benefits from it. If you are, try to have breakfast (and lunch) and skip dinner.
And yes, Bill Lagakos is a great resource, Always love his things, yourself or especially when they conflict with something that I thought was true.
