A controversial study says cutting down on sausages, mince, steak and all other forms of red or processed meat is a waste of time for most people.The report - which disagrees with most major organisations on the planet - says the evidence is weak and any risk to people's health is small.
Some experts have praised the "rigorous" assessment.
But others say "the public could be put at risk" by such "dangerously misguided" research.
In my opinion, there is little use arguing about what is the best diet. I do think veganism and eating too much soy are unhealthy (B12 deficit and hormonal dis-balance come to mind) , plus, too many vegans have some kind of a radical political agenda, but a vegetarian who eats dairy and/or eggs (and at least, some of them eat fish, too), should be OK. On the other hand, there are folks who have gone paleo/primeval and they also appear to be doing fine. One thing everyone agrees is bad for you is over-consumption of fast/processed food, sugary drinks and alcohol.
And if you are a Christian, the Scriptures certainly allow eating meat, but don't mandate it, either. Isn't it great that we have a freedom of choice?
