    Default Eat Less Red Meat, Scientists Said. Now Some Believe That Was Bad Advice.

    The evidence is too weak to justify telling individuals to eat less beef and pork, according to new research. The findings erode public trust, critics said.

    Public health officials for years have urged Americans to limit consumption of red meat and processed meats because of concerns that these foods are linked to heart disease, cancer and other ills.
    But on Monday, in a remarkable turnabout, an international collaboration of researchers produced a series of analyses concluding that the advice, a bedrock of almost all dietary guidelines, is not backed by good scientific evidence.

    Cutting red meat-for a longer life. New data shows substantial benefit in eliminating or reducing consumption of red meat and substituting healthier proteins. Red meat: in addition to raising the risk for colorectal cancer and other health problems, it can actually shorten your life.

    This information is dated but even so, I don't think much has changed. Most trials are based on feedlot beef, meaning red meat laced with antibiotics, hormones and genetically modified corn (GMO). I am prepared to guarantee that if a similar study were done with grass-fed, grass-finished meat, the results would be very different. And by the way, the term "grass fed" is really meaningless since all bovines eat grass, it's how evolution designed them. The keyword is "finished." Feedlot cattle are "finished," that is, fattened up for a few months before slaughter on corn, an unhealthy short-term diet that does put fat on them and marbles the meat. If you want truly healthful red meat, the term you should be looking for is "grass-finished." Beef will finish nicely on grass; it just takes a month or two longer.

    As usual, the devil is in the details. What was the animal fed during its life? "Red meat" from cattle can be toxic to humans if the animal is fattened quickly by being fed corn, soybeans, etc. toward the end of its life. The animal is a ruminant which cannot digest these foods. "Red meat" from cattle which have eaten grass and hay based forage for their entire life is not toxic to humans, and is quite healthy as a food for humans.
