Research finds Carnivores are more prone to cancer

Carnivores are more likely than herbivores to develop cancer, according to new research from the University of Southern Denmark. The findings were published in the journal 'Nature'.

Nonetheless, little is known about the amount to which animals are exposed to cancers and how often their health is harmed by this disease. This is hardly surprising, given any significant disease among wild animals will almost always result in the animal's untraceable death due to malnutrition or predation. Furthermore, cancer is an age-related disease, with older people being more likely to get it. As a result, estimating the risk of cancer in wild animals, whose age is rarely known, is challenging. As a result, in order to find out how often animals get cancer, this study concentrated on zoo animals, who are tracked throughout their lives.

This study used data from 191 species and 110,148 individual mammals to show that cancer is a widespread disease in mammals that can occur anywhere along the mammalian lineage. The study also revealed that cancer risk is not evenly spread throughout the mammalian lineage. Carnivores, for example, are more susceptible to cancer (about 25% of Clouded leopards, Bat-eared foxes, and Red wolves die of cancer), but ungulates tend to be consistently immune to the disease.
