Will Too Much Red Meat Shorten Your Lifespan?

by Fred Hahn on March 14, 2012

Heck no.

Zoe Harcombe dishes out the facts:

The raw data actually shows deaths rates falling with increased meat consumption up to the third or fourth quintile – and this is before all the other variables have been allowed for. This would suggest that meat consumption has a protective effect while weight, alcohol, calorie intake, lack of exercise and so on are all taking their toll.

‘Nuff said. Thanks Zoe for saving me a lot of time trying to respond to this nonsense. You did it better than I EVER could.

I've been involved in exercise ever since I became a member of The Charles Atlas Club when I was 10 years old. In 1998, I founded and established Serious Strength on the Upper West Side of NYC. My clients include kids, seniors (and everyone in between), top CEOs, celebrities, bestselling authors, journalists and TV personalities.

‘Bout damn time someone cut through the bs about red meat. Always wondered how in the world our ancestors managed to survive eating all that fat and red meat without a veggie based diet and statins. Just dumb luck, I guess. Love Zoe! She’s one of the greatest!

AND . . . does anyone see where the b.s. started? “Diets were assessed through questionnaires every four years.”

Questionnaires?! Every four years?! My, how much more scientific can we possibly get?!!!! Studies based on questionnaires drive me crazy and they quote them like they’ve been written in stone. They’re no better than opinion polls.

How can anyone possibly remember what they ate over the last four years? If you asked me what I ate last week, I couldn’t tell you with any certainty. Of course, if I was trying to impress a study with my “healthy” diet, I might even stretch the truth a little. Of course, that never happened in this study; everyone remembered exactly what they ate and ate exactly what they remembered.

Oh, spit!
