How often do you consume red meat? Specifically Beef. I've read plenty of studies that suggest that too much intake of red meat, specifically beef, Can lead to an auto-immune response that attacks the joints. Moreover it can increase the risk of rheumatoid arthritis. In my culture we don't eat that much red meat, but I find that eating beef after workouts increases energy 3 fold. If I do start to eat it at least 2 times a week will it have any detriment to my health. I know it's a very arbitrary question because everyone reacts to it differently. I just don't want to develop any heart disease, arthritis, or any other health disorder from consuming so much. So if you do eat beef on a regular basis: 1. how many times a week? 2. how much per serving? 3. If you do have increase risk of health problems from eating red meat. What is your ethnic background and family history of autoimmune, gout, etc(disorders)... Btw I am in the medical field and just wondering what people with real world experiences has to say.
