On average, each additional serving of saturated fat-filled red meat was associated with a 13% higher risk of dying during the 28-year study.
Woah woah woah...
Each serving? Seriously? If in my lifetime I have a serving of red meat, I have a 13% higher chance of dying? These numbers don't seem to add up to me. I don't even like most red meat and at most have a little bacon now and again, at worst a kebab.
I'm sure it's not so much the meat though, it's more likely the crap that they put into processed meats, there's a load of rubbish that they put in bacon alone that makes it last longer, that is also fairly toxic in large doses.
are cows human ? do humans have 4 stomachs ?
humans 100 000 years ago did not have the knowledge about the vitamins and minerals and all that crap that the human body needs and where to get it, they also did not have the luxury of going to the mall to buy the perfect mix of vegetables to "sort" of balance their diet into a workable mix.
MAn is made to eat meat, some people decided that animals are cute and shouldn't die(these are the people that nature originally wanted to die in the survival of the fittest, but science made them live) so they decided to go out of their way to not eat meat.
Just to play devils advocate, the average lifespan at this time (admittedly due to a large number of other factors) was much shorter than it is now, in the region of 35 MAX
! We weren't eating processed meat either.
