We all know this, but this might be a good article to share with friends and relatives, it’s two years old, but I hadn’t seen it before.

TLDR: University of Adelaide (in Australia) scientists examined meat eating in cultures world wide, and found that more meat correlates with longer life.

They point out that previous research efforts indicating meat causes bad health are badly designed and suspect on the face of them, but even more suspect with this study

    They controlled for wealth, they controlled for other calorie sources.

    They found that in groups otherwise alike (so same wealth level, same region, same cereal intake, etc) those who are meat lived longer, more meat, more longer

    Anyway this is one of those correlations that make you wonder what could be a confounding factor (after all they controlled for). It’s not like vegetarians, where the data are clouded by their generally healthier choice of food and a more active lifestyle than the general population

    Sure us carnivores get fit, but we’re not typical meat eaters, most are not even in ketosis even first thing in the morning

    If you’re that worried about the near future, and don’t want to see it, I recommend the standard American diet
