A recent study has connected the long term consumption of meat to various types of colon cancer. This isn't surprising, undigested meat collects in the colon over the years, preventing the colon from doing it's job, filtering out toxins and poisons. Most American's have 5-10 pounds of impacted waste, much of it undigested meat, in the colon at any one time! Here are some great explanations of why keeping the colon cleaned out and free of the impacts of long term meat consumption:
"The heavy mucus coating in the colon thickens and becomes a host of putrefaction. The blood capillaries to the colon begin to pick up the toxins, poisons and noxious debris as it seeps through the bowel wall. All tissues and organs of the body are now taking on toxic substances. Here is the beginning of true autointoxication on a physiological level. One autopsy revealed a colon to be 9 inches in diameter with a passage through it no larger than a pencil. The rest was caked up layer upon layer of encrusted fecal material. This accumulation can have the consistency of truck tire rubber. It’s that hard and black. Another autopsy revealed a stagnant colon to weigh in at an incredible 40 pounds."

"Most people who eat the standard American 'goo and glue' diet have about 5-10 pounds of matter stored in the colon. It's said that, according to the autopsy, John Wayne had 40 pounds of impacted fecal matter in his body at death. Elvis reportedly had 60 pounds."

"In times past, knowledge of the bowel was more widespread and people were taught how to care for the bowel. Knowing the ways of keeping the bowel healthy, and in good shape, is the best way I know to keep away from the grip of disease and sickness."

A vegan diet helps maintain a clean, regular and fast moving colon, and in turn normal weight and overall better health.
