YOU CAN SAFELY FILE IT under ‘Another day, another food study.’ Followed by… now what?
Case in point: the recent meat-centered study coming from Dalhousie and McMaster Universities, which concluded that the health benefits associated with reducing or eliminating red and processed meats are minimal, and the risks we thought existed are also quite small, hence the recommendation to eat meat without restrictions, if that’s how you feel like it.
“So what’s wrong with that?” some will say. The study eased the guilt and worry about red and processed meats. It’s good to not have guilt or fear as a side dish, right?
