The dangers of red meat

Red meat linked to risk of earlier death
Eating red meat increases the chances of dying prematurely, according to a large federal study offering powerful new evidence that a diet that regularly includes steaks, burgers and pork chops is hazardous to your health.

Seems like everything causes some kind of cancer or negative effect nowdays. This reminds me a joke:

Old man comes to a doctor and says he wants to live longer.
Doctor: Do you smoke:
Old man: No
Doctor: Do you drink alcohol?
Old man: No
Doctor: Do you eat sweet or fat food?
Old man: No
Doctor: Then why would you prolong your life?!

  1. Woody Allen, from the movie “Sleeper”

    (The doctors are talking about him. He has been asleep for 200 years.)

    Dr. Melik: This morning for breakfast he requested something called “wheat germ, organic honey and tiger’s milk.”
    Dr. Aragon: [chuckling] Oh, yes. Those are the charmed substances that some years ago were thought to contain life-preserving properties.
    Dr. Melik: You mean there was no deep fat? No steak or cream pies or… hot fudge?
    Dr. Aragon: Those were thought to be unhealthy… precisely the opposite of what we now know to be true.
    Dr. Melik: Incredible.

  2. I never trusted tiger’s milk myself. I mean, it sounds like using it shortens your life by half, right on the spot.
