Scientists at Dalhousie University in Halifax have just figured out what Ketonians have privately believed for years.
In a new study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, a team led by Bradley Johnston, an epidemiologist at Dalhousie, lays out the findings gleaned from a 3-year study undertaken by 14 researchers in seven countries. According to the New York Times article:
“To assess deaths from any cause, the group reviewed 61 articles reporting on 55 populations, with more than 4 million participants. The researchers also looked at randomized trials linking red meat to cancer and heart disease (there are very few), as well as 73 articles that examined links between red meat and cancer incidence and mortality.
In each study, the scientists concluded that the links between eating red meat and disease and death were small, and the quality of the evidence was low to very low.”
This study, conducted by a consortium of researchers analyzing data from around the world, conclude that any health benefits from eschewing red meat are so small as to be statistically insignificant.
The study has been denounced by The American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, and other “health” groups. Although they cannot dispute the findings of the study, they have called for a ban on its findings, warning that publishing the study would “undermine the credibility of nutrition science and erode public trust in scientific research.”
Now why would the "health" establishment want to suppress science? Hmm...
