People who ate less meat were also found to have worse health habits, like avoiding going to the doctors. We're def guilty of that.
"Our study has shown that Austrian adults who consume a vegetarian diet are less healthy (in terms of cancer, allergies, and mental health disorders), have a lower quality of life, and also require more medical treatment," the study concluded.
‘Both processed and unprocessed red meat provide iron, zinc and Vitamin B12, as well as protein,‘ says Phillips. And Tom Sanders, Professor of Nutrition and Dietetics at King’s College, London, says: ‘Some studies show red-meat-eaters are less likely to have a stroke than vegetarians.’
Red meat of any kind is a healthy choice, and doesn’t deserve the bad reputation that it’s given by the media and mainstream medical establishment. But although conventional beef won’t give you cancer and is an important source of highly bioavailable nutrients, we can’t ignore the fact that grass-fed meat is still superior to grain-fed.
