heres some stuff that can happen to you from eating meat.
high blood pressure
now,as a person in the medical field, would you advise someone to cut out the part of their diet that casues those symptoms/conditions regardless of
what it was?
Can you please provide some type of source that proves causality? You can provide every epidemiological study that supports the correlation of the
aforementioned "diseases" and I can give you one to match each of them that suggests no correlation. So, be careful what you cite. Observational
studies, as has already been pointed out, do not imply causality.
: Meta-analysis of animal fat or animal protein intake and colorectal
Conclusion: On the basis of the results of this quantitative assessment, the available epidemiologic evidence does not appear to support an
independent association between animal fat intake or animal protein intake and colorectal cancer.
A meta-analysis, of which analyzes multiple, similar studies(in this case, meat consumption and the prevalence of colorectal cancer), concluded,
though through epidemiological means, that there is no association.
Mortality in British vegetarians: results from the European Prospective Investigation
into Cancer and Nutrition
Conclusions: The mortality of both the vegetarians and the nonvegetarians in this study is low compared with national rates. Within the study,
mortality from circulatory diseases and all causes is not significantly different between vegetarians and meat eaters, but the study is not large
enough to exclude small or moderate differences for specific causes of death, and more research on this topic is required.
The fact that the pool of studies studies range the entire spectrum from positive, negative and null results is evidence that other factors must be
Heart Disease, Stroke, Obesity, Diabetes and Hypertension
: All of these could very well be considered symptoms of; Hyperinsulinemia/Insulin
Resistance/Hyperglycemia. Understanding that carbohydrate consumption drives insulin levels through the roof, it becomes increasingly clearer as to
why these complications are observed while consuming a diet rich in carbs.
How does meat contribute to these complications?
