Put Red Meat BACK On the MENU (Here’s Why)
The mainstream has been cautioning us about the dangers of eating red meat for years.
It’ll cause heart disease, they say.
It can increase your risk of cancer, they insist.
It’ll send your cholesterol through the roof, they warn.
To that, I say, blah blah blah.
There was never a shred of credible research that indicated ANY of those things. And now a recent study has revealed the TRUTH about this red meat witch-hunt.
The new study exposed YEARS of shoddy red-meat research and unnecessary fearmongering.
For starters, there are plenty of problems with the studies that claim to show red meat is causing health problems. The biggest issue is that they’re typically observational.
That means they rely on people’s recollections of their eating habits.
And I don’t know about you, but I can’t remember what I ate for dinner two nights ago, let alone last week.
Then you have to consider confounding variables or what boils down to no proof of a cause-and-effect relationship.
For example, is eating too much meat REALLY the trigger for health problems? Or is it that people who eat more meat tend to eat fewer vegetables?
To cut through all the fog, researchers developed a new statistical rating system to evaluate and summarize risk.
Using this new system, they found that the connection between red meat and health only warrants two stars. This represents a 0-15 percent risk.
There was also ZERO evidence that red meat increases your vascular risk.
The researchers plan to use this new rating system to reevaluate the health risks of all sorts of so-called health risks.
Hopefully, many other maligned foods will get their names cleared.
P.S. Eggs are another food that has gotten an undeserved bad rap. But I say the more, the better… and so does science. However, not all eggs are created equal.

Scientists have been searching in vain for a CURE for Alzheimer’s disease. While some drugs may help lessen symptoms in the short term, scientists aren’t even close to a cure.

Just because something is common, it DOESN’T make it safe. And neither does “being natural” mean it’s okay for everyone. This is true of anything—including supplements.

You’ve likely given some thought to the size of your muscles over the years or your (growing) waistline. But have you ever considered the size of your brain? You SHOULD.

Like the lung cancer I wrote just a few days ago, breast cancer’s survival rate is highest when it’s caught EARLY. But this doesn’t just mean getting cancer screenings.

Do you know the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide? Most people guess breast or colon cancer… But neither is correct. It’s lung cancer. Even more surprising for most folks is you DON’T have to have been a smoker to be a lung cancer victim. We ALL could be at risk. So, whether you smoke...
