Research done by Harvard University School of Public Health concluded that after a 30 year study , all red meat is bad for you. The study was done with over 120,00 men and women and found a correlation with eating processed red meat and premature death.
Reported by the Daily Mail:
“The study found that cutting red meat out of the diet led to significant benefits.
The researchers came to their conclusions after taking account of known chronic disease risk factors such as age, body weight, physical activity and family history.
‘On the other hand, choosing more healthful sources of protein in place of red meat can confer significant health benefits by reducing chronic disease morbidity (illness) and mortality.’
Almost 24,000 people died during the course of the study, and it was estimated that between 7.6 per cent and 9.3 per cent of these could have been avoided if everyone taking part had eaten half a helping of red meat less a day.”
Now the key word in this article is PROCESSED RED MEAT! A lot of red meat at supermarkets are laced with the cancer causing chemical sodium nitrite and most of the cattle they use eat processed grains (corn)! Cows natural diet should be grass and pigs diet should consist of plants and animals.
Also many of these animals are injected with all types of hormones and who knows what else, which brings on more problems for them!
So if these animals are eating things that are not good for them, more than likely it wont be good for humans either. Cows and pigs can provide a lot of essential nutrients for our body when on the right diet.
Bottom line, healthy cattle bring healthy people. Unhealthy cattle bring unhealthy people.
