Post by: agate on June 07, 2019, 08:01:30 pm

Someone has come up with the idea that eating red meat reduces the risk of MS. This article discusses the idea but ends with this statement:


[/color]However, not all agree that red meat has links to health benefits. Indeed, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified red meat as "probably carcinogenic" to humans in 2015.
[/color]Earlier this year, researchers found that people who ate small amounts of unprocessed red meat, amounting to 65 g or less per day, had a moderately higher risk of death.
[/color]Dietary choices are complex and include personal preferences, cultural influences, and socioeconomic factors. There is plenty of evidence that links a healthful diet to long-term health outcomes. How prominently unprocessed red meat will feature in the prevention of MS remains to be seen.
