          zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

          brought to you by the same people who recommended margarine and "vegetable" oil.
          As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

              Chris Kresser wrote an excellent article addressing the concerns about red meat: Red Meat & Cancer—Again! Will It Ever Stop?

                All this WHO talk of red meat and processed meat being worse, prompted further investigation of processed meat. Frankly, some of it ain't so bad either. Cotto salami is fermented meat, an excellent probiotic. Some processed meat is formed from a slurry of junk meat, not necessarily bad when viewed from the whole animal head to toe perspective. Nitrites? Bad, right? Not if sufficient Vitamin C is ingested. Nitrites with C convert to Nitric Oxide, a good thing.

                  Not to mention that there are more naturally occurring nitrates in spinach than in most processed meats.. and spinach is a healthy food...

                    What Chris Kresser wrote [emphasis mine]:
                    At this point, given what the research indicates, I do not feel that modest consumption of cured or processed meat is likely to pose a significant health risk, provided you are doing other things right (i.e., nurturing your gut microbiome, eating nutrient-dense, real foods, exercising, etc.). I think there is even less evidence suggesting that we should limit consumption of fresh red meat, especially when it is cooked using gentle methods (rather than charring it) and when you eat “from nose to tail.”
                    Reasonable people cannot interpret such statements (which you'll also see from the likes of Mark Sisson) as absolute endorsements of unlimited consumption of processed meat and red meat. They are pointing toward contextual modifiers. Sounds reasonable, but if they are right, then you should be practicing those contextual constraints.
