“Although the impact of red and processed meat intake on cardiovascular outcomes has been studied, inherent limitations hinder definitive causal conclusions. Traditional epidemiological study designs cannot fully account for confounding factors and reverse causation.”

“Conclusion: In conclusion, our MR analysis, utilising large-scale GWAS data, did not find a significant causal association between consumption of red and processed meat, including pork meat, mutton meat, and beef meat, and the risk of coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, or stroke.”


Meat consumption, in fact high meat consumption, is not only the dietary pattern that shaped human evolution, it is also the dietary pattern of Hunter-Gatherers; the healthiest, least chronic disease-ridden human populations ever studied.

It is biologically, logically, and scientifically absurd to think that the dietary patterns of our genetically identical ancestors have somehow become unsuited or unhealthy for us.

How we raise and feed the animals we eat, how we prepare this meat, how much we process this meat, and how much refined sugar and trans fats we consume with this meat, are what is unhealthy, NOT the consumption of a high protein, high animal fat diet.

Politics and economics via big agriculture lobbying is what determined the Food Pyramid and so-called expert recommendations from nutritionists and dieticians, not valid nutritional science.


Once again the best available evidence makes the logical and scientific conclusion self-evident. If you want to lose weight, gain muscle, reduce risk of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, depression and every other chronic illness in order to live a longer, better life you need to ‘Live Right for Your Species Type™’ – you need to Eat Well – Move Well – Think Well®. You need to eat more healthy meat and animal fat and less unhealthy refined carbohydrates and fats, exercise regularly, drink clean water, and improve your emotional fitness and wellbeing.
