Denise Minger — Meet Your Meat: An Objective at a Controversial Food
Published on Mar 2, 2013
Denise Minger presenting at the Ancestral Health Symposium 2012 (AHS12)
Meet Your Meat: An Objective Look at a Controversial Food
Abstract: Ever since cholesterol and saturated fat rose to infamy as health foes, meat has generally been seen as a food to minimize or even eliminate completely. Red meat, in particular, is frequently linked to heart disease and certain cancers in observational studies, leading to widespread recommendations to reduce its consumption.
This presentation looks at the evidence behind our current understanding of meat, discusses its role in human history, critiques the use of observational studies to find associations between meat and disease, examines some legitimate risks with certain forms of meat, and explores why our modern focus on muscle meat -- even when it's grass-fed -- may indeed contribute to health problems. The presentation will include PowerPoint slides and a question-and-answer session, and audience members will come away with a thorough understanding of how meat impacts their health.
