WILL EATING RED MEAT KILL YOU?
It’s high time for our latest episode of Science Says Meat Will Kill You, complete with a brand new study and commercial-free viral media coverage! Have a seat and tune in (or at least set your DVR for later viewing).
If you haven’t had at least one family member, coworker, or soon-to-be-unfriended Facebook acquaintance send you this study as a reminder that you’re killing yourself, you’re either really lucky or your inbox is broken. Thanks to an observational study called http://archinte.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/archinternmed.2011.2287 Red Meat Consumption and Mortality freshly pressed in the Archives of Internal Medicine, a slew of bold headlines exploded across every conceivable media outlet this week:
- “ http://www.chicagotribune.com/health/la-he-red-meat-20120313,0,2364743.story All red meat is bad for you, new study says ”
- “ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9138230/Red-meat-is-blamed-for-one-in-10-early-deaths.html Red meat is blamed for one in 10 early deaths ”
- “ http://news.sky.com/home/uk-news/article/16187521 Scientists warn ‘red meat can be lethal’ ”

KAAYLA DANIEL’S BLOG: Recovery from Modern Diets
Dr. Kaayla Daniel’s latest blog answers the questions, What if bacon is actually good for us? What if it actually supports good health and is not a mortal dietary sin after all? What about all that fat, cholesterol and nitrites? What if we can eat all we’d like? Naughty propositions to be sure, but ones the Naughty Nutritionist™ is prepared to argue!

QUESTIONS ANSWERED by Sally Fallon Morell
Q. I have been eating good quality liver each week and taking cod liver oil; might I be getting too much vitamin A?
A. This is not too much liver as long as it is balanced with foods rich in vitamin D. So cook the liver in bacon fat or lard, egg those pastured egg yolks, and take your cod liver oil for vitamin D. English blood sausage, if you can get it, is also a good source of vitamin D.
Q. My son is allergic to milk, egg and cod fish. Can you suggest good alternatives.
A. Alternatives would be other types of seafood and meat of all kinds, soups based on broth, etc. If your son does not tolerate butter, use ghee. Have you tried raw milk? Your son may tolerate that.
Q. I am adding nuts and seeds to bread. Do all of them need to be soaked (using walnuts, pumpkin, chia and flax)
A. Make crispy nuts of walnuts and pumpkin seeds. Flax seed and chia seed don’t need to be soaked.
Q. I am unclear what is lime water and whether I need to rinse the food after soaking it. Is it toxic?
A. Lime water is just calcium carbonate, so it is not toxic. But yes, rinse the lime water first and then soak the grains in an acidic medium, which you do not need to rinse out. But to make things easier, you can start with Masa flour, which has already been soaked in limewater.
Q. Is “palm olein oil” a good fat to eat? I know that palm oil is good but has palm olein oil been damaged during processing? My supermarket sells vegetable chips cooked in this oil.
A. Palm olein oil is the liquid fraction of the palm oil, with the saturated fat removed. As this is mostly monounsaturated oleic acid, this industrial fat would be better than other industrial oils (corn, soybean, etc); however, you are right, the pure palm oil would be a better choice.
