Kosher Diet and how it Reduce exposure to Carcinogens
How This Helps
Kosher meat should be obtained from cows below the age of 2.5 years. Kosher laws also prohibit gunshot or stun inflicted on the brain on the animal to kill them. Meat obtained from the forequarters of the animal alone is fit under the kosher law. The meat thus obtained is soaked or salted to remove the blood. The blood carries a number of disease causing microbes and this governs the principle of removing the blood.
Kosher diet also relies on Olive oil obtained from the holy land (Palestine). Olive oil is rich in constituents that help in increasing good cholesterol and reducing bad cholesterol. This property of the diet will have significant impact in preventing arthrosclerosis and thromboembolic phenomena in the subsequent stages of the affliction. According to researchers, the extensive use of salt is helpful in eliminating bacteria that could be harmful to humans.
According to reports from European markets, non-Jews from Africa and Asia have started turning to kosher meat after they found that the meat undergoes more rigorous inspection and investigation compared to regular meat. Another factor that makes kosher meat safe and healthy is that the dietary laws laid out by the Jews prohibit mixing meat and milk products. Kosher meat and poultry are also free from hormones and this is significant since hormones are believed to be highly carcinogenic.
Science and Research
Kosher foods represent a Jewish creation and kosher food is required to conform to dietary laws enshrined by the Jews. Halakha is the name ascribed to the Jewish law and it is known as kosher in the English language and is derived from Kosher which is a Hebrew term. The term translates to fit and in the context of food, it denotes food that is fit to be consumed. Food that does not conform to this law is termed as terif or Yiddish which term has its origin in the Hebrew term denoting “torn”. The meat that qualifies to be consumed according to kosher should come from animals that are killed in accordance with dietary laws of the Jews and the blood of the animal should be drained out before the meat is eaten.
Most vegetarians are aware that products of high quality won’t have hidden meat products. Patients experiencing enzyme intolerance cannot eat derivatives from whole milk. This is perhaps one reason that encourages non Jews to kosher food. The Kosher dietary laws carry health related thoughts that are identical to other religions. The Kosher stipulations are now growing in acceptance across the globe and many European and American people are choosing Kosher as a safe and healthy alternative.
The forequarter meats of animals are kosher, the hindquarter is non-kosher:
Most of the beef pieces are muscles and exercise makes the muscles stronger compared to other muscle tissue which gets lesser exercise. This difference can be noticed when the meat is cooked. The best way to cook this type of meat is dry roasting.
Meat conforming to the kosher rules is also rich in sterile proteins (bacteria free and microbes) and free hormones. These components are high in natural values apart from being delicious to the taste buds. To fully understand the different cuts of meat you should get help from an expert butcher.
The meal plan outlined below aims at preventing the onset of diseases rather than cure an existing disease. The plan is designed to provide you the diet needs for a full day. From a Jewish doctor’s perspective, the meal plan focuses on protecting you from pre-carcinogenic agents entering your body through unhealthy meat containing pre-carcinogenic constituents.
In this meal plan the meat used should conform to the kosher rules or Hala rules (set by Muslims) or others that follow the same tenets on killing animals and draining the blood before the meat is cooked.
