Modern science shows us clearly that if we want to thrive, we should avoid all meat as much as possible, or even better, cut it out altogether.
By now you may have ditched bacon, sausages, ham and salami, after the huge WHO report came out classifying red and processed meats as class 1 carcinogens, the same as smoking.
But there’s more than that to worry you. And it doesn’t stop at steak.
An increasing body of evidence shows that meat, including white meat such as chicken, offers no health benefits compared to the alternatives, and it is linked to causing heart disease, diabetes, cancer and premature death.
A study of 70,000 people found veggies were found to be 12 percent less likely to die after 6 years compared to meat-eaters.
Physician Dr Michael Greger, author of How Not to Die, has said: ‘Going meat-free is one of the best things you can do if you want to lead a long and healthy life.’
