Super Red!

by Wendy Myers

We’ve all been told for decades that red meat causes heart disease and increases mortality because it contains saturated fat. This is a fallacy created by poor research and many have paid a dear price in their health as a result. Red meat is essential for optimum health so much so that I think it should be considered a superfood!

 Most clients and friends express fears about red meat or boast that they don’t eat red meat. In kind, I’ve been very fearful of red meat for a long time and had rarely eaten it for decades. When I was vegetarian I read book after book about how red meat causes disease, verifying my fears. See, red meat kills!
Over the past few decades, red meat has been increasingly blamed for everything from heart disease to cancer and certain early death. Newspapers and magazines incessantly post headlines about the negative health ramifications of eating red meat, fueling cow consumer fears. These front page claims are dead wrong.
