Keep in mind that the study has only concluded the following (at this time):


“We found that consuming more than half a serving per day of red meat, which is equivalent to a 3 ounce serving three times per week, did not worsen blood pressure and blood total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglyceride concentrations, which are commonly screened by health-care providers,” O’Connor said.


Not to say that it means that you can go whole-hog and eat all the red meat you want without any consequences. The idea is a balanced meal altogether - red meat is part of that equation, of course. I do believe that some people take basic common sense out of the formula when trying to determine what's healthy or bad for you. Anything in excess will, in time, be bad for you. But balancing your portions and your food groups will always be the best idea. Chopping off an entire food group because studies show "it can lead to <insert disease or high/low health metric here>" is generally a bad idea (in my opinion).

Eventually they'll tell us that it's bad to have red meat.

They never said it was healthy to eat a metric ton of red meat. They simply said that it didn't impact blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides. There would need to be another study that focuses on the impact that red meat has on glucose levels and inflammation. As noted, they've only focused on cardiovascular metrics when performing this study and it was only done for a few months (whereas cardiovascular disease normally takes years to begin to show).

TL;DR: Red meat is still "bad for you". Nobody said otherwise.

Yea, EVERYTHING is bad for you if you shovel it in your face non stop. At this point it should be common knowledge like knowing fire is hot.

Moderation is key, but that is a challenge in and of itself for some.

You'd think so but that's seldom the case. Some people take such studies or clickbait articles based off of them as an indication that they're allowed to eat nothing but that particular food. Everything from Acai berries (but it helps to lose weight! Eat more of them, it's great to coffee (it helps prevent Alzheimer's disease!)... and such have all had such clickbait articles written about them and people take them at face value.

It's an unfortunate reality, indeed.

Circadian rhythms, stress levels, lifestyle habits and environment all influence our response to ANY given diet, when more researchers start using these as measures to the best of their abilities then we'll see something a bit more real, although there is already quite a bit of research showing the impact circadian arrhythmia can do to someone, an extreme example would be shift workers/night shift workers, but most people suffer from "social jet lag" due to too much artificial light after dusk.

Also Red Meat isn't intrinsically bad, nor is carbohydrates, or saturated fats. it's more nuanced/contexual than you've probably heard and have been hearing since Ancel Keys came in with his views (for red meat and saturated fats).

Chicken after a hard working day and or working out, or mostly during the week.

Beef and pork on weekends, or summer time. Since you will probably feel sluggish, so eat it on your off time.

I don't need a fucking study to prove anything. Your body will tell you what is best for you.

They always tell us that something is good for us then much later turn around and say "oh no this is bad". I just do what I want.

meat is healthy in moderation...unless you get a meat that has already expired, but sold in the market as "fresh"
