Zeb has said in his 201 lecture that Nutrition can be likened to religion and politics in its ability to elicit a passionate discourse between individuals.  Such is the lesson with this article and study released yesterday, “All red meat is bad for you, new study says.” 

Filtering such information can be challenging and confusing, especially when you consider the Paleo and evolutionary concepts we discuss.  First, they do not distinguish between ANY red meat.  I agree that if you eat hot dogs and cheap industry raised beef regularly over your lifetime, you will develop health problems.  Second, most food studies show correlations not causation, meaning, the meat doesn’t necessarily cause these health problems.  For instance, you can say vegetarians live longer, but is it because they don’t eat meat or because they care more about their health than the average meat eater?  If someone is willing to become a vegetarian, it is indicitve that they are interested in becoming more healthy, meaning they most likely will not smoke cigarettes and will be more active than other individuals.  The point is to look deeper.  You know my point of view on this, but we as individuals need to read more into what we see and read.  We should have reasons behind our actions.  Don’t eat a certain way because I say so or because you were told its the best way.  I have linked Part 1 of a great debate between Dr. Ornish (from the above article and supporter of the study) and Gary Taubes (author and advocate for low carb high fat diet) from the Charlie Rose Show with guest moderator Dr. Oz (another low fat advocate).  I hope you continue and watch parts 2, 3, 4 and 5.  (Of course, I may be biased in choosing this debate so feel free to find your own info and post to comments!)

Here is another biased video for those interested in some Paleo science:
