Meet Your Meat: An Objective Look at a Controversial Food

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.

Denise Minger is a health blogger, editor, writer, and teacher based in Portland, Oregon.
She runs the "anti-bad-science" blog, and is currently completing her first book, Death By Food Pyramid, to be released in August of 2012
