    We all have to die of something. For me let it be red meat, red wine, and the occasional cigar.

      I agree with Breadhead. I just turned 62 this month and my doctor has told me the same thing. I figure after 4 heart attacks, a triple bypass, and 4 stents it's gonna take more than BBQ and Scotch to take me out.

      none of us gets out of this alive. live long enough and you'll die. We are all born with a death sentence, we are all stories in the end, we are all someone else's history. just make certain the stories they write about you are good. or, at least, good fun!

    Ugh, politics raises its' head. Not about political parties.

    I'm sure the report will be consistent with the tenets of Agenda 21 (UN) and red meat will once again be declared unhealthy, unsustainable, and the goal will be to make it unaffordable.

      My accountant was worried too. His name was on my returns as the preparer. After the 3rd time he threatened them with harassment charges.

      I, we, had no clue why they were aggressively attacking us. There was never an adjustment made on any of my returns.

      I'm an outspoken constitutionalist though.😎

      The Constitution was not written as a Bill of Rights... It was written to tell the federal government what they COULDN'T do to We the People or the States.

      I'm just sayin... Leave me alone.😏

      Freddie Mercury asked, "Who wants to live forever?" at the time, I think he was the only one who knew his clock was ticking.

      The Doctor says, "Being immortal doesn't feel like living forever. It's everybody else dying."

      I've always eaten whatever I wanted. With the heart problem, we've been trying to avoid salt. So, going out to dinner has become a very infrequent event. I have to cook. That usually only happens on Saturdays. So, diet has changed.

      Last checkup, they told me that I need to have more protein and less carbohydrates. I said, "does that mean you're telling me to eat more meat and less fruits and vegetables?" They were somewhat taken aback at my question, but finally said "yes"

        I have a very, very strict diet.

        I don't eat anything I couldn't buy off the shelf 50 years ago.😎

        I don't buy preprocessed food. I don't buy pre cooked food.

        I resist pre seasoned food.

        I cook my own bread.

        I eat all I want, when I want and I'm only 50lbs over weight.😊

        sometimes, illness comes with perks. Seems I am medically and chronically Hyponatremic. I also have chronically low iron levels. The first means, and I swear, this is the medical prescription, Increase salt intake. The second means, 'Put that salt on a STEAK!'

      Get the prices down too far, and ranchers and feed lots will go out of business. Their profit margins are already very slim. Most ranchers raise cattle as a hobby that pays for itself, or for an agricultural tax exemption on rural lands. I don't know of a single rancher that makes a large profit, and I know most of the large ones in Florida - Ben Hill Griffin, Duda, Alico, Lightsey, Lykes, etc.

        Deflation can create more economic havoc than inflation can. It can wipe out the supply chain.

        However... Prime grade Ribeye at $1.99 a pound for a week or 2 would work for me.😜

        You bring up a good point, RA. A doctor friend of mine who had a few cattle told me once that cattle ranching is the most heavily privately subsidized business in the country.

      So happy thee is a thread on this. I've read the study, and also looked at previous ones and there are a couple of points you can make to your vegan friends crowing "I told you so!":
      • studies done on a strictly vegan population in the UK unearthed similar instances of cancer occurance
      • red meat was classed as "Probably" linked to increased risk for colorectal cancer. The BIG nasty conclusion from the study was that processed meats are "Definitely Carcinogenic" and will eventually give you cancer. So red meat a lot lower there on the risk scale. Other things classed as Probably are having a wood fire in your house, being a hairdresser, and doing shift work that disrupts your circadian rhythms.
      • there is no distinction as to what kind of meat being consumed (grass fed, all pork, mix of the two, all grain fed...). Anyone who's seen a marbled grain fed steak v a grass fed one can tell you there is a marked difference
      • there is also no indication of how MUCH red meat would push you into the danger zone.

      so if you're a pitmaster, you were going to get cancer anyway from being around your lovely wood fire, having mad cutting skills and an awesome hair do, and staying up all night to time your brisket properly....so a little red meat is likely to not hurt!!

      The interesting thing I found in this conclusion v other things on the Probably list is that humans do in fact need red meat to properly develop and stay healthy....Vitamin B12 for example is unattainable from plants, and selenium is as well; both are critical to proper brain formation and development. Iron from meat is also much more bioavailable to the human body than plant-based iron sources. Grass fed beef is high in CLA's which FIGHT cancer. So this is, to my knowledge, the only compound on the WHO's Probably list which is necessary to human life and development. Ie, it's not a choice like tobacco, alcohol etc

      I'll continue to much on my happily-raised and grass fed little flavor bombs, thank you very much

      Brace yourselves though....they're studying coffee next!

        Hmmm... Wait three years.

        Another study financed by another source will comeback and dispute these findings.

        Butter, no butter?

        Sugar, no sugar?

        Salt, no salt?

        It never ends!!!

        I'm 64 and have few health challenges.

        I'm going to continue eating whatever tastes good.😋
