A: This question pops up in the Facebook group and it is reported on in the media every now and then. After watching this video, please head to the Facebook group and in the search bar type in ‘red meat and bowel cancer’ and you can hear me have a little rant about this topic. But what I’ll say here is that there has NEVER and I repeat NEVER been a study that has been able to link the consumption of red meat to bowel cancer, not even one! In fact, there has never been a study to show an association between red meat and ANY lifestyle disease. What generally happens in most studies is that red meat and processed meat are lumped together in one category and you can imagine that the outcomes from that are going to bevery different as opposed to just having red meat in a category by itself.
Red meat is highly nutritious, it keeps us satiated, it will aid your health NOT hinder you. Buy good quality unprocessed red meat and enjoy it!
