and colleagues have found that inflammation resulting from a molecule introduced through consumption of these foods could promote tumour growth, For the study, the researchers examined a non-human cellular molecule called N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc), which is a type of glycan, or sugar molecule, that humans don't naturally produce, but that can be incorporated into human tissues as a result of eating red meat.
