Uproar after research claims red meat poses no health risk

So, red meat does not seem bad for health, only for environment.

Uproar after research claims red meat poses no health risk
New research that claims red and processed meat is probably not harmful to our health has caused controversy among experts who maintain people should cut down.

The World Health Organization has classified red and processed meats as cancer-causing. Public health bodies worldwide urge people to limit their intake of red and processed meat to reduce their cancer risk. The NHS advises that people who eat 90g of meat a day – equivalent to three thin slices of roast meat – should cut down to 70g.

Aside from public health, calls are multiplying for people to cut back on meat consumption because of the climate emergency and the greenhouse gas emissions that come from animal farming.

But the 14-member international team led by Bradley Johnston an associate professor of community health at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, concluded that those who like meat should not stop on health grounds. “Based on the research, we cannot say with any certainty that eating red or processed meat causes cancer, diabetes or heart disease,” he said.

Greta is going to be so mad.
I could be the catalyst that sparks the revolution
I could be an inmate in a long-term institution
I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die
I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by
What a waste...

Are you using cleaner burning propane and propane products from Hank Hill, or do you use dirtier charcoal briquettes?

I didn't find Greta mentioned in the article. Perhaps it is just that the GTDS is all over your white asses? :roll:

Nothing but wood pellets for me in my Green Moutain Daniel Boone pellet grill. That way I can burn some wood and use up some electricity at the same time.

Well proven: Lipid lowering drugs work to reduce cardiovascular deaths (though not as much as you might think)

Plausible: Saturated fats increase cardiovascular risk

A bit sketchy: Red meat increases cardiovascular risk

A profession of faith: Red meat causes cancer

It is sugar that is unhealthy and unnatural, not meat or fat.

Meat is good. I ate first 19 years only wild game meat. :mrgreen:
