Most studies regarding red meat are severely flawed. You can't isolate this one ingredient to your diet.
Ok, I give you a few examples:
- many people who like red meat like to drink alcohol with it and fries or mashed potatoes
- more people who eat red meat are also smokers than the group that is vegetarian
- probably a lot of those also ate sausages, which are highly processed and salt-loaded
- many of the red meat lovers probably eat at fast food chains, where you get the antibiotics filled meat
Now I challenge anyone to find a study that proves that eating red meat (organic/fresh from the farm) while maintaining a healthy lifestyle (exercise, non-smoker, moderate drinker) is bad for your health.
This study controlled for smoking and sedentary lifestyle. It also separated out processed meat consumption. Of course, you can try to impose a zillion conditions to make relevant studies appear irrelevant (grass fed, heritage meat, cooked medium-rare, served with a glass of Bordeaux, consumed by someone who exercises regularly and lives in an area with no fumes from vehicles or industry, blah blah blah). But the science is pretty solid that the more meat you eat, the higher your risk of cancer and heart disease is.
