Red Meat Myth FINALLY Busted!
Mainstream medicine almost always goes after the wrong guy.
Red meat has been in the crosshairs of the so-called health community for decades, with claims that it increases your risk of heart disease.
To that, I’ve ALWAYS said “baloney.”
But new research may have finally given this protein-packed HEALTH food a get-out-of-jail-free card.
Hopefully, red meat won’t be in the doghouse much longer, as yet another study has vindicated this practically perfect health food.
The recent study included 3,638 participants ages 45 to 84. Researchers collected data using detailed food frequency questionnaires and factored in critical statistics like height, weight, gender, and activity level.
One of the MAIN reasons red meat has been cast as a villain is that many in the medical community insist it increases inflammation and, as a result, is associated with an increased risk of heart problems.
Initially, the new study appeared to confirm that connection.
But when the researchers added BMI (body mass index) into the equation, they found NO ASSOCIATION between red meat consumption and inflammation.
Interestingly, this was the case whether people ate processed OR unprocessed meat. (Although there are other reasons to steer clear of the processed stuff.)
The researchers’ conclusion—and mine TOO—is that body weight is a FAR more significant driver of inflammation than eating red meat.
Now, a study like this doesn’t give you permission to eat red meat. If you’re like me, you’ve been eating it all along, anyway.
But I hope it DOES erase any lingering doubt or guilt you might have about its potential risks. Save that for your midnight snack bowls of ice cream or the Entenmann’s you’ve been eating for breakfast.
But when it comes to red meat, you can savor every delicious guilt-free bite.
P.S. This isn’t the FIRST time the medical mainstream has been proven wrong. Research published last year revealed another reason to put red meat BACK on the menu.
