Is red meat healthy or unhealthy? If you ask most people, they will tell you that they think it is decidedly unhealthy. Why? Because they've heard it is linked to obesity, heart disease, and cancer in research so many times over the years that they just believe it is true. So when another "big" study out of Oxford University comes along in April 2019 linking red and processed meat consumption to bowel cancer, people get all up in arms about what they should be eating in their diet. Read about it below.

A rasher of bacon a day 'ups cancer risk'

While these claims about red meat and cancer certainly sound serious and valid, health podcaster and international bestselling author of KETO CLARITY Jimmy Moore says they really have no application to everyday human health. The kind of research used by the Oxford researchers (and most of nutritional healthy studies that come out) are observational and epidemiological ones of DATA, not actually looking at people in a randomized, controlled metabolic ward setting (the truly good science that means something to people). Listen to Jimmy expose the major flaws in this Oxford study and the ramifications of the continued release of bad science like this in this episode.

“When you eat red meat you get all of the amino acids that your body will ever need. Can you do that easily on a plant-based diet? NO. YOU CANNOT. The only food in the human diet that can give you that in one place is in animal-based foods.” — Jimmy Moore
