I do not miss red meat at all, no more than chicken or turkey or pork.
In fact now i actually have an aversion to it.

Think about choices it is not a joke. I cannot believe how many of my old friends right now have cancer many younger than me. Some have died. None of them limited red meat consumption.

It is not that hard and after awhile you won't even miss it. Your digestion is better, focus and energy levels improve so it is not only a huge risk for cancer and coronary disease but in the end quality of life as well.

When this article talks about processed meat think fast food.

Ok i am preaching maybe some one will listen?

I have read about Mercury in fish. The articles i read said to limit fish intake to a few days a week. 3W, have you had your blood tested for mercury?

Mercury in fish are most important to children and pregnant women. There are guides they should follow on whicj fish contain the most mercury. Adult women and men who are not planning on becoming pregnant are at little risk
According to the FDA Or the AMA. The fact remains that EVERY culture whose primary diet is sea based heart disease is rare and in some cases umkown.

The studies and the one above is long term all point to red meat even more so for processed red meat as the culprit.

The above report released says there is a risk with red meat at every single level. In other words, there is no moderate levels at which red meat is a good healthy choice. One portion a week raises the risk.

I suspect if you ate fish exclusively out of lower Escambia River... close to the coal-fired Crist Steam Plant, you could have health effects from mercury. Razz

You could have good arteries and be mad as a hatter...

From the NRDChttp://www.nrdc.org/health/effects/mercury/guide.asp

Adult men, and women who are not planning to become pregnant, are less at risk from mercury exposure but may wish to refer to the list for low-mercury choices.

HIGH MERCURY

Eat three servings or less per month:
Bluefish
Grouper*
Mackerel (Spanish, Gulf)
Sea Bass (Chilean)*
Tuna (Canned Albacore)
Tuna (Yellowfin)*

HIGHEST MERCURY

Avoid eating:
Mackerel (King)
Marlin*
Orange Roughy*
Shark*
Swordfish*
Tilefish*
Tuna (Bigeye, Ahi)*
