However, it may also be noted that foods that are too high on protein may cause adverse health effects to like, due to an excessive build-up of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which increase the risk of many diseases such as cancer, anti-inflammatory autoimmune disease and cancer. Our health could also be affected by the harmful substances and pathogens that are transmitted by livestock.
