Eating red meat increases the chances of dying prematurely, according to the first large study to examine whether regularly eating beef or pork increases mortality.

The study of more than 500,000 middle-aged and elderly Americans found that those who consumed about four ounces of red meat a day (the equivalent of about a small hamburger) were more than 30 percent more likely to die during the 10 years they were followed, mostly from heart disease and cancer. Sausage, cold cuts and other processed meats also increased the risk.

I would rather die from eating red meat than die from starvation.

We eat more chicken, pork and venison than red meat. Grand pappy would say " Red meat is for a treat " ie B-days anniversary. But Val and I eat crab, lobster, oysters, or clams on our anniversary. That way the butter just kills ya.

I am usually trying to eat greens, salad bar, beans, chicken or tuna salad for lunch , and most week nights, I eat cheese, crackers, breakfast cereal. Sadly, I almost never eat BBQ anymore........Now meatloaf, and burgers, that is a different story!!!
