These uncontrolled studies, based upon lifestyles, are so lame. Diet changes. People binge and lie. Municipal water treatments vary. Some people are careful to eat organic. Others don't mind eating pesticides. Some people clean their newly bough produce exceptionally well. Others ....The researchers questioned 494,979 U.S. residents between the ages of 50 and 71 about their lifestyle and diet habits, including consumption of red meat and their favored cooking methods, then followed them for approximately 10 years.
I agree.No doubt that freaky beef everyone eats causes cancer.
Now, redo the study using organic, grass-fed, grass-finished beef.
I don't eat any meat, Jim. I'm a vegan.But really now. How often to you eat steak? How often do you eat it rare, med well, well, charred? What kind of red meat do you eat? If none at all, will you do this for 10 years? Do you always use the same tenderizer or tenderizing method? Doesn't your diet change periodically? Does you lifestyle change a bit? Do you have NO stress changes in such a period? Hormonal changes? Do you take aspirin or nsaids?
Yes, on those kind of surveys (studies), I'm hard to please.
I understand, but my point was, how can you trust such uncontrolled studies even with so many people / personalities / general health / varying diets / - all over a period of 10 years.I don't eat any meat, Jim. I'm a vegan.
