this has had lots of exposure in recent years, but the Harvard School of Public health has conducted a huge test on individuals over a number of years to monitor their health, etc

Question is it really conclusive proof you will be at risk eating red meat and processed food????

    I do; yes.

    And I'll continue to, as well. And as has been pointed out elsewhere, rather repeatedly, by equally authoritative sources, following the publication of that particular item of "research": it's based only on "theoretical models" and they conflict with observed controlled clinical trial results.

    They do, however, pander brilliantly to many people's existing prejudices, and for that reason alone, however unreliable and silly they may be, they're guaranteed a widespread audience without much of the consensus of scientific opinion emerging at all. :rolleyes:

      Interesting I am a meat eater too, although i have cut back on red meat.
      what about this Cardiologist from the land of beef steaks, Texas?
      his research into the human diet.
      Were Humans Meant to Eat Meat?

      Why is the human digestive tract longer than a meat eater such as a lion? Meat needs to be digested fast.

    I believe in balance, and yes, I still eat red meat.

    However, in recent years I have reduced the amount of red meat I eat, but not because of any studies or recommendations. I have just personally felt that I don't need to eat huge steaks.

      I have also GT.
      I try to listen to what my body wants.
      It still wants red meat, just not as often as it did when I was younger.
      Maybe one meal every week or two will be a steak.

      I just thought of this after I posted.
      I've noticed also that as I've gotten older I've become more patience and calmer.

      Might be a connection between the two.

        I eat a ton of red meat (not just steaks) but I also work out a lot and the meat is tops for that as it's great for protein/creatine/zinc/iron among other stuff, chicken get's boring no matter how it's cooked, but I also love fish. I think a lot of those studies that pointed out any negativity were with subjects who weren't heathy, no gym, no running etc... yet would eat the sh!t out of some butter steak and potatoes every night lol.

    Yessir, carnivore to the core!

    OK maybe humans are classified 'just outside' the scope of a carnivore, but heck yeah... it's meat & potatoes here.

    Like others have said, I question the results of any study these days... as more often than not, they are used to benefit the source compiling the study in some way, shape, or form - as opposed to providing much sustenance of any well researched truth.

    If I recall a well-known Warrior's signature reads; (something like) - "I didn't climb the evolutionary ladder to eat tofu." - I agree!

    I don't eat red meat often, but still do occasionally. I don't think it is the meat itself. If you look at the crap they are dosing our meat with, you'll see a lot of crap in it that just isn't meant for our consumption. The US can't even GIVE our red meat to many countries. There's too much junk in it that's been banned in other places that actually care if their population is sick or not.

      For myself, there are few alternative choices to the taste of home-cooked red meat; flash charbroiled on the outside, and juicy red tenderness oozing from the inside at every chewy luscious bite. It's far more unhealthy to keep reading about all the inconclusive "proof".

      very true indeed.
      I have stated previously our digestive tracts are too long for eating meat, unlike carnivorous animals whose digestive tracts are shorter, ideal to digest meat.

      Vegetarians are apparently more healthy.

        It's true our digestive tract is too long for massive amounts of meat consumption -- but our teeth say that we are omnivorous and are meant to eat just about anything.

        I think that we eat way too much meat - but I'm not seeing any vegans that look any so much more healthy than people who eat at least some meat or dairy. Vegans that eat raw milk, cheese, and eggs as well as some white meat and fish seem to be a lot more healthy than either strict vegetarian or those that eat meat in almost every meal.

        Balance seems to be key -- as well as eating organic rather than the trash that "modern" agriculture and factory farms produce.

      I agree. The problem is not what is inherently wrong with meat, but that modern-day poisons such as pesticides and herbicides accumulate in meat (in particular fatty tissue), and --in the US -- feeding tax-money-subsidized corn to cattle which they don't digest well and causes a massive growth of e-coli bacteria (which wouldn't even exist if they were just fed grass). The creates the artificial need to apply antibiotics to beef to combat the e-coli problem. Ingesting antibiotics wreaks havoc on our bodies in myriad ways, eg damaging intestinal flora necessary to properly digest food and combat microorganisms toxic to the human body, causing the development of antibiotic resistant diseases, etc.

      You got that right Sal

      EU has had a ban on US and Canadian beef since 1988 and poultry since 1999 because of what is is fed and cleaned with.

      Not being smug as I am sure EU beef and poultry is probably banned in the US for exactly the same reasons.

      Just different hormones and chemicals.

      After all in the UK cattle used to be fed the ground up carcasses of other cattle which led to BSE and in France they feed cattle on pasteurized sewage.

      Funny what one country deems as normal.

      Mad world eh?

      100% agree with this. If you get your meat from clean sources that treat their cattle well and allow them to roam outdoors and graze on grass -- as opposed to being confined in factories and being fed grains, hormones, antibiotics (which are only really necessary because their living conditions/diet are making them sick), etc. -- then it really isn't an issue.

        You're so very right.
        When possible, I try to obtain grass fed beef. Here in OH we have a few farms close that sell it. It's more expensive but I can definitely tell the difference.

        A few years back, me and few friends chipped in on a side of beef from a organic farm. I got about 50 pounds, spent $210 and it was worth every dime.

    Don't let em fool ya, TB - antibiotics are used more for making cattle fat than to keep them healthy. If you look at the human population you will see that those that are exposed to the most antibiotics are the fattest in our population, too. Antibiotics mess with gut flora (your immune system) and causes an over-abundance of the flora that makes you digest food into fat instead of burning it.


    Incidentally -- there's nothing better than steaks or schnitzel made from wild meat that has never been near a farm.....especially a factory farm. Yum.

          I lived in the Mountains of Colorado where lottery hunting territory bordered my yard. I had a well trained Rotty and when a hunter got lost we'd go drag him back in. If the weather got scary, which it does at 8,700 ft surrounded by 13,500 ft peaks, we'd allow the hunters to come stay in the living room where it was warm and safe. The reward for us doing that? A freezer continually packed with fresh wild meats - venison, moose, elk. My dog even ate fresh meat for dinner every night. People would see me load slices of fresh elk heart into his bowl and would almost cry for jealousy.

          You can taste the cleanness of the meat. After eating chemical soaked meat long enough you forget. After you forget and taste something fresh again like that, non-organic meat ever tastes decent again.

            From what I've been told and read the people out west are like that, always offering a hand to those in need. And that's a darn good thing they are because from some of the stories I've seen the weather can change pretty quick up in the mountains.

            Lucky dog eating fresh meat like that. Can't think of a better reward for the work of saving someone's life.

            And I 100% agree in tasting the cleanness of wild game. There is no real comparison between the two. I do still eat beef, but it's from a farm and know how it's raised. Heck even the pork and chicken is fresh from the farm so I cant really remember the last time my family and I ate store bought meat at home.

                    I tend to ignore the reports for a couple simple reasons.
                    1. I've been eating red meat for over 50 years with no problems.
                    2. See 1

                    I'm not saying the reports are all wrong and if it is a concern for you, then stop eating it or cut down.
                    But let's face it, a lot of these reports make it sound like everyone who eats red meat will have health problems, and like almost everything else that's not the case.

Vegans that eat raw milk, cheese, and eggs as well as some white meat and fish seem to be a lot more healthy than either strict vegetarian or those that eat meat in almost every meal.

      Balance seems to be key -- as well as eating organic rather than the trash that "modern" agriculture and factory farms produce.
      for that reason I too have opted for fish and chicken, chicken must be monitored too as battery farms are not healthy for them or us!

      If there is a biblical reason for mankind to eat meat, i seem to remember a mandate given to Noah after the great flood to eat meat. this seems to indicate people at least God`s people were vegetarians! Thinking about it, the land had been covered with water so after the flood subsided they needed readily available food. that`s my version of it anyway.

      Hmmmmmmm. You do realize the first Christians were vegetarian, don't you? Eating meat came later. But then - so did the book.

    I can't live without eating red meat..I eat it several times a week. I will usually have a steak once every two weeks. I try to keep it from getting out of control but I'm a carnivore...

    Never yet tried Venison... I think I'll try that pretty soon

      Inuit or Eskimo diet seem to bare that out Sal, wild animal fat does not have the impurities of farmed animals, also Inuit eat 20 times more Omega 3 than the US counterparts. They are also comparable body mass as Americans, yet suffer less heart diseases, etc.

    I'm so tired of all the media hysteria about which foods are healthy and not. I do simply not care. The key to good health (what I think) is to eat varied of meat, vegetables, fish, fruits, birds, etc. And being in physical activity. If you do that, it doesn't matter if you eat a Big Mac once a month or eat cake once a week.

      I'm not saying the reports are all wrong and if it is a concern for you, then stop eating it or cut down.
      But let's face it, a lot of these reports make it sound like everyone who eats red meat will have health problems, and like almost everything else that's not the case.
      that`s a valid point. much the way I view it. I have red meat sometimes.
      there was a lady i spoke to recently who thought smoking was good for her health. she was 90 years old and smoked all her life!
      But THE point is for lots of people red meat may be a health problem! this old lady had a seemingly robust defense to smoking, just like some people may regarding regular consumption of red meat.

        I don't know about lots of people, but I agree it can be a health problem for some. If I'm having a health problem I'll try to find the source and if possible eliminate it.
        The bigger problem is people going to doctors with a problem and the doctors telling them to eliminate A,B,and C, from their diet and then blaming A for the problem when it could of been B or C or a combination of the three.
        I just don't like the idea of telling the world something like red meat is bad for you when it's not necessarily always true and in reality it could be more about what they are putting into the beef then the beef itself.

    For me, the issue is really the environment...It takes a lot of energy to raise the crops needed to raise cattle and cattle are really one of the things that are hardest on the environment...We'd probably be better off all driving Hummers than eating beef.

    But damn...Is there anything better than a nice juicey cheese burger?

      There may be elegant solutions to this problem:

      What's for dinner? It might be algae-fed beef

      Not unless it's a Reubin, with corned beef sliced tissue thin and stacked around an inch thick and smothered in cheese and sourkraut.

      Ah crap. I have to go eat again. This forum has got to be absolute torture for someone on a diet. I end up having to fix something to eat every damned time I come in this place.

      Red meat is beef, pork, mutton, goat, and suchlike. White meat is fish, chicken, turkey, duck, and other fowls.
