Harald-Zur-HauzenGerman scientist and Nobel Prize winner in physiology, Harald zur Hausen, warned that poorly-studied virus, which is seen in cows, can cause cancer in humans!

“I think that domestic animals can be a direct cause of colon cancer in humans. We have experimental data support of this hypothesis. However, this remains to be confirmed, “said Hausen.

Other researchers had previously warned that the use of red meat (beef, veal, horse meat, mutton and pork) increases the risk of getting colorectal cancer. But Hausen argues that the danger only comes with beef, cow’s milk!

“The traditional explanation was associated with the preparation of meat for food on the grill, and hence was carried out assertions that this leads to the formation of carcinogens.

This thesis loses sight of the same carcinogens forms during frying fish and chicken, and that no one thinks that the use of meat fowl and fish increases the risk of colon cancer, “noted the scientist.

He discovers that in his research gave attention to the fact that in Mongolia eat very much red meat, and that the colon cancer is extremely rare, as in India, where beef for religious reasons in fact never eats.

Hausen also indicates that the level of colorectal cancer increased rapidly after World War II. He is convinced that it is most directly connected with what is in these countries became popular imported beef.

Hausen, in the latest issue of the scientific journal International Journal of Cancer revealed that the studied samples of blood and milk of cows and therein discovered elements of DNA that may belong to unknown virus, which could be the cause of cancer.
