Maybe this will keep people from eating red meat and bacon. More for me then!!

These are the worst, the only way they'd have any credibility at all is if the people ate nothing but read meat or nothing but animals.
The reality is if they did that they'd be pretty healthy. These findings don't consider that the mortality could be linked to anything other than red meat (sugar, grains, horribly fats, etc)
Yeah, it was discussed. It was published in March so its been done to death. As in debunked.
Red meats in combination with a CW diet full of wheat and corn will kill you. It's the combination of a poor lifestyle and food choices that kills.

This is all correlation BS. Red meat has been demonized for 40 years in this country. Most people think red meat is unhealthy (even though it's the healthiest). Therefore, people that eat the most red meat tend to care the least about their health. People that eat the most read meat:
1.) Smoke more.
2.) Exercise less.
3.) Eat more takeout and less fresh fruits and vegetables.
4.) Are more likely to be overweight.
I submit that THESE are the reasons why these people die earlier deaths. The red meat is the only thing keeping them alive (sorta like Paula Deen and butter).
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
