“ This is a slam-dunk to say that, ‘Yes, indeed, if people want to be healthy and live longer, consume less red and processed meat.’ „

A piece of cow a day WILL SEND YOU TO AN EARLY GRAVE

Of course the interpreters of the study go on to recommend eating “white meat” as a substitute; it’s important to make sure people do not conclude that eating zero meat might be the best choice. That’s crazy-talk, and where would you get all those vitamins and minerals and nutrients if not from “white meat,” anyway?

Heaven help us if we stop calling it “meat” and address it as, say, “animal flesh.” Ugh. Most offensive to me, forever, is the stupid semantics game, where if you say “a piece of chicken” instead of “a piece of a dead chicken” people can avoid taking responsibility for their diets.
