The Roundup

Here is The Roundup, Edition 47, bringing you the best health research and paleo recipes from around the web over the past two weeks.

Blast from the Past

Recent evidence suggests dietary advice to limit red meat is unnecessarily restrictive and may have unintended health consequences. As people have been avoiding red meat, food trends suggest that they have been replacing unprocessed red meat with unhealthy fats and refined carbohydrates, potentially contributing to the rapid rise in the prevalence of obesity since the 1970s as well as other risk factors for heart disease and/or metabolic syndrome. Avoiding red meat not only hasn’t made us healthier, it might have actually made us unhealthier!

If you’re still unconvinced that red meat is a healthy, nutrient dense food, I suggest reading the comprehensive Red Meat Report I’ve put together, compiling the best research-based articles on the common myths and misconceptions about meat, delicious recipes for cooking red meat, and online resources for finding high quality grass-fed meat products.

Research Report

  • A brisk walk each day is enough to reduce risk of early death by as much as 30%.
  • A new study found that children who had quality #sleep performed better academically.
  • This study demonstrates the potential power of the 14Four program in reducing metabolic syndrome.
  • A significant percentage of obese adults are nutrient deficient in essential vitamins and minerals.
  • Two studies show a high-protein/low-carb diet gives you a “metabolic advantage”.
  • According to a new study, staying active allows you to age optimally.
  • Research demonstrated that drinking from cans made with BPA increased blood pressure in the elderly.

Worth a Look

For the Foodies

  1. I’ve nothing against red meat, but that study is rotten to the core. Half the authors are in the industry; talk about a massive conflict of interest.
    I have to say I’m disappointed that this stuff even gets linked here.
