  • L.A. Times: All Red Meat is Bad

    What to make of this story? The article doesnt discuss the how's or why's, just that there is a correlation with red meat and shorter lifespan.

    I'm not going to click the link provided, because I'm thinking it's using the same study posted all over the boards. Also, plenty of debate over the study, itself, throughout.

          Does anyone have an actual explanation for why this article is wrong? My guess is that the red meat people are eating is grain fed, loaded with antibiotics and growth hormones, and cooked in canola oil, ect. But does anyone have a better explanation than just a guess?

          My concern with eating Paleo has always been whether we are eating the exact animals our ancestors ate, and also whether they had the abundance that we do now. Did our ancestors have the ability to eat a 3/4-1lbs steak several times a week, or was that a once a month kind of thing? Did they fast a lot more because there was no food available for long periods of time? Even if they ate a lot of fat, was it anywhere close to the quantity of fat that we are able to eat now? That's the kind of stuff that I'm still skeptical about with eating Paleo and always wonder if I should tweak that part of the diet to not overdoing fat and red meat intake?

            There are aprox. 4 other threads on the same article with a lot of discussion. There are problems with the type of analysis, the processed meat eaters in the study were heavier drinkers, smokers, and heavier. Sugar and other known heart disease triggers were not factored in etc....but that is from gleaming info from the other threads.
            Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                  Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                    Denise Minger just posted a counter article on the front page, lengthy read, but it's something she discussed at the Paleo Summit: bad science/studies.
