Scientists say that there is a place for red meat in a diet and then the author of this article doesn't follow this up except with "use meat as a treat and not a staple."

This is much like saying "Scientists say there is a place for lard in the diet and use it as a treat and not as a staple." Or use chocolate, or whatever.

Please - if you're going to write the article, write it. This article shows why eating red meat is bad and never explains why it might not be. Why should we eat the USDA's suggested 18 ounces a week? Only because agri-business says we should.

Obviously there is no reason to eat meat (other than the same reasons we should drink whiskey or eat candy) thus, the article is mistakenly titled to boot.

If you're going to pretend the article is unbaised, do so, otherwise come out and say it like it is - there is no reason to eat red meat. Ever.

Red meat is not as bad for you as furry greenish-grey meat.

But are the maggots themselves healthy to eat? Low fat protein source right there!

I eat red meat like I am packing an artery. I wash it down with little neck clams drowned in melted butter and a magnum of Cabernet. Sure I am chunky but I am happy.

Red meat and nothing but...

Keep your hormone laced chicken and your soy products. Ever do any research on Soy?

Awesome! Your post made me hungry for the dinner I’m going to have to night. I am CARNIVORE!! Hear me roar!!!

That being said, there is no cogent argument out there to support that red meat is a necessary, healthful addition to the human diet. To believe that would be to have lived under a rock for the last 30 or so years. Every few years these studies come out, and despite saying that it’s OK in moderation, the bottom-line is it’s bad for ya. The fact is, humans don’t die from red meat-withdrawal—or do they? Lol.

It’s the same bullshjit with coffee, red wine, eggs, etc. It’s good! No wait—it’s bad. Um, good? No way man-- don’t ingest that! So stupid.

Add to that, advertising for these products, and the average consumer becomes ambivalent.“Eggs. Nature’s perfect food”.“Beef! It’s what’s for dinner tonight”.“Pork! The other white meat”. Blah, blah. I’ll make my own decisions, thank you.

I say s-c-r-e-w it and enjoy your life. Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow—we die.

I had a birthday this week and I’m excited to be going tonight to yes you guessed it—a Steakhouse!!! Yum! Shrimp cocktail to start, a big ole slab o’ cow with a lobster tail on the side; a baked potato, broccoli and a salad. And I’ll wash it down with a VAT of booze; probably cocktails while we’re waiting for a table, then glorious, glorious Merlot or Cabernet. Been fasting all week for this. Ahhhh…

“It’s bullshjt, folks! And it’s bad for ya!”

Happy Birthday to me!

happy birthday
Seems like everyday you hear something else is bad for you and causes some form of cancer. I saw something on one of those news programs I don't know if it was 20/20 but they had on these people who only eat raw food (grass & twigs yum). They looked about 30 years older than their cooked food eating counterparts.
I will stick to my red meat, chicken,turkey and of course the occasional maggot.
