New York Times Says “Eat Less Meat”

Filed under: Health & Nutrition

I don’t want to gross you out with a photo of red meat, so here’s an adorable calf instead.

Red meat causes breast cancer? Why am I not surprised?

A recent study in the Archives of Internal Medicine concludes:

Women who ate more than 1½ servings of red meat per day were almost twice as likely to develop hormone-related breast cancer as those who ate fewer than three portions per week

An editorial in today’s New York Times responds:

The silver lining — if red meat does indeed increase the risk of breast cancer — is that the cure would be simple: Just eat less meat.

Not perfect, but hey, they’re getting there.

    Thats great that they said that. It’s sad that these newspapers have such an effect on people, but in this case, its a good thing for the most part. Hey you gotta use the enemy sometimes.

    The bad part though is now people will eat more avian and sea animals, which will translate to more animals being killed for meat.

    People are always going to eat birds and fish if they can get them; this article from the Times may influence some people a little, but in the end, people do what they do.

    Considering that there’s just been some mainstream-media hoopla about the fishing industry no longere existing in 50 years, a lot of people are going to make sure they get their share of the remaining fish–it’s human nature.
