The CLA in Lamb Chop Recipes Fights Cancer

Introducing lamb chop recipes with CLA, nature's premier cancer-fighting agent. Lamb has more cancer- fighting CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than any other meat! Even more than milk. A lamb chop recipe with CLA is the most powerful anti-carcinogen among all naturally occurring substances.

(Hold everything--I just read of a researcher in Western Australia who makes the astonishing claim that kangaroo meat has even more CLA than lamb. Anyone tried kangaroo meat lately? This may or may not be valid. The report has not been verified and the research has not been replicated, so for now we'll stick with the claim that lamb is the premier producer of CLA, the cancer-fighting substance.) Here are the facts.

CLA Content of Meat in grams per 100 grams of Fat:

Lamb 0.56
Beef 0.55
Veal 0.27
Turkey 0.25
Chicken 0.09
Pork 0.06

The source of this research is Chin, S.F. et al and was published in The Journal of Food Composition Analysis, 5;185-197.

There's more good news. Research shows that even these small amounts--easily attainable in normal human food portions--are so powerful they can prevent and halt the growth of cancerous tumors. CLA is especially effective in fighting breast and prostate cancer, yet is also effective against many other types of cancer. When you feed your family lamb chop recipes from grassfed lamb, you are shoring up their defenses against cancer and other diseases.

The good news keeps coming! The CLA content listed above is for conventionally raised lamb, not pasture raised. Pasture-finished lamb has 2-3 times more CLA than grain-finished lamb. Lambs are nearly always fed a grain diet to gain weight just prior to slaughter. This means you could be getting approximately 1.68 grams of CLA in every 100 grams of fat in a grassfed lamb chop recipe. More than enough to fight and prevent cancerous tumors.
