does protein deficiency protect against cancer quotes from campbell in 1972
Does “Protein Deficiency” Protect Against Cancer? Quotes From Campbell in 1972

“The effect of protein deficiency in male weanling rats on the activity of the hepatic microsomal enzyme system was studied.”

“A deficiency of dietary protein was shown to increase the toxicity of aflatoxin for rats.”

campbell s low protein rats were malnourished and had fatty liver quotes from campbell 1972
Campbell’s Low-Protein Rats Were Malnourished and Had Fatty Liver – Quotes From Campbell, 1972

“First, the reduced DNA content could be indicative of a lower cell number per gram of liver and would accordingly imply larger cells in the protein-deprived group. These cells could be larger in response to lipid infiltration since the livers of the low protein group were observed to be very fatty. Consequently, the normal rate of cell proliferation would have been decreased during protein deprivation, which is similar to the retardation of brain cell growth of young malnourished animals described by Winick and Rosso.”

a toxic revelation quotes from campbell 1983
A Toxic Revelation – Quotes From Campbell, 1983

Some degree of bile duct proliferation was observed in all animals dosed with [aflatoxin]. However, the groups fed the 5% casein diet during the dosing period had relatively severe bile duct proliferation and cholangiofibrosis [fibrosis of the bile duct]. In these groups, the architecture of the liver was often distorted by fibrous septa. Groups fed the 20% casein diet during the dosing period had mild bile duct proliferation and no cholangiofibrosis.

protein deficiency disappears down the memory hole quotes from campbell 1991
Protein Deficiency Disappears Down the Memory Hole – Quotes From Campbell, 1991

“Although a 5% casein diet is not generally considered nutritionally adequate (i.e., it does not support maximal growth), for every health index we have thus far measured, the 5% casein diet supports better health in rats than does the 20% casein diet.”

Lysine supplementation of wheat gluten during the postinitiation period enhanced the gamma-glutamyltransferase-positive response to a level comparable with that of the high-quality protein. These results suggest that one can inhibit the development of foci either by decreasing the quantity of protein intake and holding the quality of the protein constant or by decreasing the quality and holding the quantity constant.

it s a general effect of protein not animal protein quotes from campbell 1989
It’s a General Effect of Protein, Not Animal Protein – Quotes From Campbell, 1989

[I]n 1945 Larsen and Heston found that the incidence of spontaneous pulmonary tumors was doubled in strain A mice fed low-casein diets supplemented with cystine (the most limiting amino acid). Silverstone and Tannenbaum (14) showed that the development of spontaneous hepatomas was enhanced in C3H mice fed a gelatin-containing diet when methionine and cystine were added.

It’s a General Effect of Protein, Not Animal Protein – Quotes From Campbell, 1989

A review of the somewhat limited data from these and earlier studies (1) indicated that inhibition of tumor development as a result of marginal intakes of various proteins could be abolished by supplementation with the respective limiting amino acid for each protein. . . .

it s a general effect of protein not animal protein quotes from campbell 19892
It’s a General Effect of Protein, Not Animal Protein – Quotes From Campbell, 1989

[O]ur results suggest that the enhancement of focus development by lysine supplementation of gluten is due to a general improvement in dietary protein quality and not to any particular metabolic effect peculiar to lysine. This conclusion is supported by previous work (1, 12-14) showing that various low-quality proteins are better able to enhance tumor development when they are supplemented with the amino acid in greatest deficit.

campbell s curious rats conclusions
Campbell’s Curious Rats – Conclusions
  • Adequate protein is necessary for detoxification and other roles of glutathione such as antioxidant defense.
  • Protein protects against cancer in the experiments most closely resembling contexts experienced naturally.
  • There may be a role for restricting protein in someone who already has cancer.
  • There is no qualitative difference between animal and plant protein except that animal protein is more abundant and of higher biological quality.
