    The Dalhousie and McMaster researchers, together with researchers from Poland and Spain, performed five systematic reviews. One included more than 100 studies involving more than six million people. The analysis found that differences in red and processed meat consumption resulted in only small differences in the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, stroke, heart attack or type 2 diabetes. In another meta-analysis — a study of studies — looking specifically at the risk of developing or dying from prostate, esophageal, colorectal, breast or other cancers, again they found any link with meat was small. Overall, the 14-member panel concluded that, for most people, “the desirable effects (a potential lowered risk for cancer and cardiometabolic outcomes) associated with reducing red meat consumption probably do not outweigh the undesirable effects (impact on quality of life, burden of modifying cultural and personal meal preparation and eating habits).”

    And these people, researchers as they are called by many, actually get paid MILLION$ to tell us it is OK to eat meat, eggs, and drink coffee.

    And regardless of any study - since the scientists can't seem to continuously state whether eggs are good or bad for you, butter or margarine is better for you, the health benefits or risks of a strict vegan diet, etc. ad nauseum - I personally subscribe to the "all things in moderation" diet. It's been working for 1,000's of years...

    That said, I personally try to avoid processed foods wherever possible. I don't need science to tell me they're bad for my digestion; my body tells me just fine.

    Me too. All things in moderation, including drinking alcohol. One steak a week, and a couple of hamburgers a week. Washed down with a couple of beers. It's been decades since I've been drunk, and even then I wasn't 'knee walking' drunk. I'm well into my 70's.

    The study didn't comment on white meat such as chicken vs red meat. The "experts" have been siding with white meat for a very long time so possibly they might be right on that. Don

    And as long as this isn't a regular occurrence, I'd say you could be healthy as an ox. Give into this temptation frequently, you'll be as big as an ox.

    I'm not sure a whole cheese cake would fit inside me at one sitting. But a slice or two, sure.

    Since the world will be gone in 12 years, why fret! Eat what you want!

    The universe is ~13 billion years old, the earth, 3-4 billion years old, humans at best live 80 years. ....................... don't blink or you'll miss life!

    I'm sure there is no need for air conditioning for most people most days of the year either, but some things make life better.

    everything in moderation, we all have an expiration date. There are too many things in the world that can kill you so enjoy a huge T-bone once in a while
