Your "Stand-off" is not over. Firstly this study is implying alot, and it's a studying that clearly needs to be though-out before any hasty statements
can be made. They were including things like bacon, sausages and other processed meats well known to be full of saturated fats and a few other
nasties, but the meat itself, and the protien has nothing wrong with it. Just like with EVERY OTHER DAMN THING about dieting and food, its quantity
yet again taking the cake (and I mean the whole cake), and yet the food is being attacked. Water is essential for life, yet you can still drown in
I'm not going to sit here and debate ethics with anyone - if you believe eating meat is wrong, your fully entitled to, and if you enjoy eating it,
then by all means, but making bold statements that havent been thought out is wrong. Trying to justify your ethical decisions with science is just not
right (possibly referring to another heavily-debated topic).
"If I ate red meat my whole life, and died a few years shorter than I should have, I'd die a happy man" - my tastebuds.
EDIT: It's interesting how its so hard to find the actual numbers, and not the "with an EXTRA daily dose" part, followed by some 'convincing' numbers.
An extra daily dose of almost anything designed to be portioned is bad.
