He’s dead. Found looking like Christopher McCandless

Must be the lack of meat fucking with your faculties. A veggie that can't do maths, the arcade creeper, and the Mexican Viagra muncher trying to tell me what I can and can't eat. Absolute fucking libe

Well, at least the lack of calories isn't affecting your mood.

He addresses the colon myth in his tweets

 

A meta-analysis of 29 studies of meat consumption and colon cancer concluded that a high consumption of red meat increases risk by 28%, and a high consumption of processed meat increases risk by 20%.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/red-meat-and-colon-cancer

Red meat – such as beef, lamb and pork – is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and can form part of a balanced diet. But eating a lot of red and processed meat increases your risk of bowel (colorectal) cancer.

That's why it's recommended that people who eat more than 90g (cooked weight) of red and processed meat a day cut down to 70g or less. This could help reduce your risk of bowel cancer.

i'm more convinced by Harvard studies and official NHS advice than random bloke on the internet's twitter feed

The problem is that everyone in those studies - the red meat eaters, and the ones that aren't, are also pounding processed foods down their gullets. So it's impossible to say that it's the red meat that's the cause. Maybe the big red meat eaters are more predisposed to washing them down with loads of lager and eating processed carbs to go with the steaks and burgers.

if you're going to consume a shit load of animal products, unprocessed options are clearly best option for your health, but the scientific consensus as things stand is too much red meat isn't good for you

i wouldn't say eating that much of anything is part of a balanced diet though. human beings are omnivores, not carnivores. 

that said, what you put in your body is up to you. i would be a hypocrite if i tried to lecture anyone about the benefits of healthy living given the amount of shit i have put in my body over the years.

but freedom of choice may be curtailed as long as factory farming continues to destroy the planet. if you are looking at why you might reduce meat consumption, the environmental argument is by far the most convincing one. i wouldn't be surprised if a meat tax is introduced at some point in the not-so-distant future

policymakers only react when voters start demanding change. we are heading for climate catastrophe in our lifetimes if we don't alter course quickly.

I've refrained from contributing to the population problem, so feel at liberty to eat and drive whatever I feel like. ;)

I've reduced my intake to one red meat meal a week, but is that still too much? It's almost always beef.

 

I think based on the weight of evidence that you're probably right, but I really like eating meat...

Yeah but just cos everyone else is doing something, doesn't mean it's right. I'm not going to go vegan but I think there's a compromise to be made somewhere in the middle both for my own sake and that of the planet.

 

Making adjustments elsewhere too - pretty much lived off coke zero for quite some time but have recently changed to just water and coffee. It killed me at first, but I think it's been worth it - my overall fluid intake has risen and I'm sure I'm much healthier for it. Crazy that I was still hooked on carbonated drinks in my mid 30s but we all have our vices and I'm pleased to be seeing the back of that one.

 

As for the meat... I don't want bowel cancer tbh, and I can't find any particular fault with the research other than what Gemmill cited.

I get that it makes you feel better to be doing something, but cutting meat out your diet is doing fuck all. The sea was on fire the other day ffs.

 

Have yourself a steak and watch as the human race circles the drain. There's no stopping us now.

I came off keto for the last few months and the weight has piled back on. Nowhere near what I was like when I started on keto first time cos I couldn't be fucked with letting it get that bad but I'm a stone heavier than I was, just by allowing shitty carbs back in. They're utterly shit for you.

Want some clunge to vouch? Okay!

 

he's right about decreasing the processed/sugary foods. 

my experience with a largely plant-based diet doesn't chime with what this ripped bird is saying in the slightest. she sounds like she's trying to sell something.
