LMFAO! Yes, I do have a question.'Caucazoid Tribes'? Really? Again--who gives a shjt? lol!! Eat a steak for chrissakes and get over yourself.
Ugh.
ah, I see ur confusion, I spelped it wrong, I'm trying to be politically correct, but here ya go:

The term Caucasian (or Caucasoid) race is used to denote the general physical type of some or all of the indigenous populations of Europe, North Africa, Southwest Asia and South Asia.

This is the relavant part:

In common use it is usually restricted to Europeans and other lighter-skinned populations within this area and thus equivalent to the varying definitions of "white" race.

now, what the heck does this have to do with beef u ask? Well, these caucasoid tribes had plentiful high quality protein in the form of bovine herds and game. And hence grew bigger, stronger, more muscular and in turn dominated all other tribes on the planet.

so eat your meat.

once again, any questions?

Oh boy. Physician, heal thyself! If you want to 'help' people or try to educate them you must at least have a command of the English language. Add to that the overuse of what I call 'text-speak' and you sound like a bobble-headed teenager texting away. Lose the 'urself' and the 'u' and maybe someone will listen to your inane rambling.
Also, the snarky, snide meanness needs to go. We're all happy you eat landscapers' clean-ups for dinner. Good for you. If I throw a stick will you run along now? Yawn...
well of course ur correct, I am an obnoxious lil s-o-b. sorry for that, thanks for listening.

There are plenty of reasons to eat red meat! Red meat has plenty of nutrients, as stated in the article. It tastes damn good. Keeping it around also helps in feeding the masses! But really....comparing meat to lard and candy is just stupid. It's all about nutrient density...for this red meat can be valuable. If that's all you eat then sure it can be unhealthy! Same as if all you ever ate was lettuce! One of the biggest problems is an imbalance of red meat (or any animal products like meat and cheese) with the other foods that your body needs to obtain nutrients. The article brought up omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for example. These fatty acids need to be consumed in a balance. Most people do not get enough omega 3 and way way too much omega 6 from all those steaks and cheeseburgers. This will lead to an increase in almost any disease.

I agree. Especially with the 'it tastes damn good' part, lol. Good post.
