“Next week, the first chimpanzee in the world who has been released from captivity in a zoo through a human legal instrument, Habeas Corpus, will arrive at Guarulhos airport, in São Paulo, from Mendoza, Argentina.

Cecília, who is the only survivor of a group of four chimpanzees who lived in the Mendoza Zoo, Argentina, already has a reserved space in the Great Primates Sanctuary of Sorocaba, affiliated to the GAP Project, where she must live the rest of her days, with the company of other 50 chimpanzees.”

Red meat triggers toxic immune reaction which causes cancer, scientists find – Telegraph

Red meat triggers toxic immune reaction which causes cancer, scientists find – Telegraph.

“Red meat has been linked to cancer for decades, with research suggesting that eating large amounts of pork, beef or lamb raises the risk of deadly tumours.

But for the first time scientists think they know what is causing the effect. The body, it seems, views red meat as a foreign invader and sparks a toxic immune response.

Researchers have always been puzzled about how other mammals could eat a diet high in red meat without any adverse health consequences.

Now they have discovered that pork, beef and lamb contains a sugar which is naturally produced by other carnivores but not humans.”
