As stated last month, eating reasonable amounts of healthy foods seems to be effective way to not decrease your life span by 1/2 a dozen years. Specifically, high meat diets are not really that good for avoiding cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer's, stomach ulcers and an array of other conditions. But the study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine only included 1/2 a million people over 10 years, so how accurate can it be?
For my friends who have adopted an enthusiastic carnivore concentrated diet, you'll be happy to know the industrial lobbying group "The American Meat Institute" disagrees with many specifics of the study. The last 11 to 16% of a person's life are perhaps not as much fun as the the previous years leading up to them, especially when devouring juicy, free range, organically raised, high quality meats. They Are delicious. I'm going to continue to eat them in moderation.
