Red Meat Blamed in 1 Out of 10 Early Deaths
The Department of Health was last night urged to review its guidance on red meat after a study found that eating almost half the daily recommended amount can significantly increase the risk of dying early from cancer and heart diseaseSmall quantities of processed meat such as bacon, sausages or salami can increase the likelihood of dying by a fifth, researchers from Harvard School of Medicine found. Eating steak increases the risk of dying by 12%. The study found that cutting the amount of red meat in peoples’ diets to 1.5 ounces (42 grams) a day, equivalent to one large steak a week, could prevent almost one in 10 early deaths in men and one in 13 in women..Red meat often contains high amounts of saturated fat, while bacon and salami contain large amounts of salt. Replacing red meat with poultry, fish or vegetables, whole grains and other healthy foods cut the risk of dying by up to one fifth, the study found.
Just remember this: Study after study after study is commissioned by the government, not by the population that these studies affect most.
I can guarantee you that, if you go to dinner with any politician in Washington, he or she is eating anything he or she desires, and the richer the diet, the better. Additionally, they drink alcohol like it was going out of style, and they smoke tobacco like smokestacks.
Look at Barack Obama — a notorious smoker who can't quit. Look at his wife, Michelle, publicly feeding her kids "low-fat" pork ribs (whatever THAT is). Down South, you know what a "low-fat pork rib" is? It's a dry bone — pork ribs are ALL fat. Don't give me that "low-fat" bullshit, honey.
Look at Hillary Clinton, the U.S. Secretary of State, who drinks alcohol to excess, and who has actually tripled the State Department's annual alcoholic beverage bill. And look at the lavish parties and vacations they all enjoy in Washington. Those people in the highest offices revel in everything that is deemed "unhealthy" for the rest of us.
Government-commissioned studies are NOT TAKEN SERIOUSLY by the very people who commission them. And that isn't us.
Don't believe anything that the Federal Government tells you. And especially don't believe the food recommendations of the USDA — the so-called "Food Pyramid" is a pure hoax, designed only to support unnecessary aspects of the agricultural industry. No, you do not need pork products, you do not need eggs, and you absolutely do not need any dairy products — no milk, no cheese.
Humans get all the Calcium we need in a red-meat diet with greens on the side. Period. That's how we evolved, and that's how we'll survive. Believe me, we're not increasing our chances of survival by heeding government warnings and the bullshit being taught in public schools.
They don't teach anything in the government-sponsored mandatory public school system any more, except political indoctrination — they teach kids to OBEY the government, to blindly ACCEPT these government-sponsored studies without question.
The result? Kids are "graduating" in abject illiteracy, and after 12 years in the public school system, these kids are unqualified to flip a hamburger. So their parents must fork over an additional quarter-million dollars in college tuition for four more years of schooling, after which the kids are STILL unable to compose a coherent paragraph.
You know what they teach in schools today? They teach Anthropogenic Global Warming THEORY. They teach the downfall of Capitalism and the benefits of Socialism and Communism. And they probably still teach the USDA's "Food Pyramid" of "required" foods in the human diet — which is a HOAX.
No, humans do not require milk or cheese or pork or poultry eggs in their diets. That's absurd, it's a marketing ploy that dates back to the early 20th Century. You may as well claim that we require SPIDERS in our diet.
Sure, humans can eat a wide diversity of foods, including spiders, and particularly so in instances of starvation — but that doesn't mean we must eat a wide diversity of foods to survive.
Because we're primarily carnivorous
We go to such desperate extremes in diet, it's no wonder we're such a physically weak species. I don't think people realize that you're better off eating the same things your parents were eating when you were conceived. You can live a long, healthy life eating red meat and green vegetables, because THAT'S WHERE WE COME FROM, okay?
You can go on a vegetarian diet if you want, but you should know that "diets" are traditionally a form of medical treatment for illness. When your liver acts up, for example, you go on a citrus diet to correct it. Diets are medical therapy, okay? So there may be a vegetarian diet, but there's no such thing as a "vegetarian" human.
Although we can survive on vegetable matter, inasmuch as we are omnivores, we cannot survive on vegetable matter ALONE.
The reason we are superlative survivors is because of our ability to consume a diversity of foods; however, it is obvious from an examination of our anatomies and digestive systems and BRAINS that we are primarily CARNIVORES and that we have evolved on a high-protein diet provided by meats, not vegetable sources.
Look at the size of our gastrointestinal systems and our pelvises. We're not designed like other apes that consume vegetable matter primarily. A large gut is indicative of a vegetable diet, because vegetable matter is not terribly protein-rich; so you must consume a LOT of vegetable matter to extract the protein that you require.
A carnivorous diet, rather, provides an abundance of protein in a small package. So carnivores typically have small digestive systems compared to their vegetarian prey.
Again, compare a human skeleton to that of a chimpanzee or a gorilla or orangutan. The differences are obvious. The ape skeleton is built to accommodate a large, vegetarian gut. The human skeleton is built to accommodate a much smaller gut.
It's perfectly acceptable for humans to consume a single diet comprised of red meat and greens for their entire lives. When the red meat runs out, we'll switch over to fish, or we'll switch over to virtually anything that doesn't immediately kill us.
Because we CAN.
But anytime the government "warns" us about our diets, it's always a matter of politics and economics, and it's never about public health.
