    Actually, in looking closer and reading Mark's lead article today - that alone is enough to debunk this article. If more meat = more fast food, and "fast food" wasn't even measured or controlled for, then the study is totally pointless and misleading.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

      That is a great point. I'd love (or hate ) to see what else is in a fast food burger - not to mention what types of oils they are fried in. Now this is some debunking I can get behind!
      Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

      • Well, I don't think this thread will ever reach the trolling heights that cap'n'8 reached with is "Tauber" thread.

        Ah, now there was some good old fashioned forum fun.

        • Studies that refute the original study.

          NFU Angered As New Evidence Reveals Link Between Red Meat And Cancer Was Flawed
          Diet and health. What can you believe: or does bacon kill you?
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

          • This study has been done to death already. Even if it is true, its a 20% relative increase, not absolute. In other words if you have a 10% chance of getting cancer, if you eat red meat you now have an extra 2% (20% of 10%) chance of getting it.
