Cancer is caused by dietary factors as much as it is caused by smoking. Adhering to a vegan diet means loading up on foods that fight cancer (i.e., fiber-packed grains and beans as well as phytocheminal-packed fruits and veggies) and minimizing intake of foods that cause cancer. According to Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the world's foremost epidemiologist, "No chemical carcinogen is nearly so important in causing human cancer as animal protein." Scientific studies have suggested that meat consumption can lead to stomach, esophageal, breast, prostate, and colon cancer.
