Grandmother Says It's Important to Eat Meat, Friends Say Eating Meat Is Bad

The grill is neat and the meat is bought. Grandmother says it's important to eat meat, otherwise you'll get sick and pale. 

Friends say eating meat kills you, or at least does significant health damage. Which one is right? We have gathered the pros and cons, and some recommendations at the end.

Meat health

Pro: Protein found in meat is essential for maintaining the body's tissue.

Against: Studies show that large consumption of meat increases the risk of various cancers, including pancreatic cancer, colon cancer and breast cancer.

Pro: Meat in general and red meat in particular, increases the levels of zinc. Zinc is essential for healthy skin and for strengthening the immune system, and studies show that most children and teenagers now lack this mineral.

Against: Meat is infused with hormones that cause fertility problems and lead to early sexual development in children.

Pro: Red meat is an essential source of iron. Iron is essential for transferring oxygen to the body's tissues, for strengthening the immune system and for producing energy. Animal iron is better utilized by the body.

Against: Meat increases the risk of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, arthritis and more.

Pro: Meat is a major protein source. The proteins are needed to strengthen the muscles, build cells and heal the organs of the body. The proteins in meat are whole proteins.

Against: Meat damages the digestive tract. The flesh rotates during the process of passing through the intestines and releases toxins that accumulate in the liver and kidneys.

Pro: Eating protein causes a feeling of satisfaction, which helps to lose weight.

Against: Excess protein in meat leads to calcium secretion, which contributes to osteoporosis.

Pro: lean red meat does not contain high levels of fat and cholesterol and provides essential vitamins and minerals.

Against: Meat contains high fat content and is considered high in calories. Eating too much meat can lead to weight gain. The saturated fat in the meat, and cholesterol, causes arterial blockages, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Pro: Red meat is a good source for potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.

Against: Excess protein in meat causes kidney overload and damage.

Pros: Meat is the best source for B vitamins, essential for maintaining nerve and blood, an excellent source of creatine, essential for energy supply and carnosine, an antioxidant that protects against degenerative processes.

Against: Processed meat, such as sausages, contains a preservative called nitrate, which is known to be carcinogenic.


It seems, as in everything, that the secret is in dosages. Meat and meat products are key components of the western diet. They are rich in essential nutrients, but it is desirable to eat meat at a balanced dosage. Today, it is recommended to avoid processed meats such as sausages and ready-made schnitzels, which contain industrial toxins.

Research shows clearly that an increase in meat consumption increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart disease and cancer. Therefore, before eating, we need to build the menu intelligently.

Here are some recommendations that will allow you to enjoy the health benefits of meat and avoid the damage:

  • Choose lean meats, and choose the thinnest pieces.
  • Turkey meat, especially female turkey, is considered lean and rich in iron.
  • Remove the excess fat around the meat.
  • The skin of the chicken is especially fat. Remove it before eating.
  • Pay attention to quantities - the recommendation today is between 140-170 grams of meat a day. It is recommended to switch to smaller plates and fill them only once.
  • Combine as many foods as possible with fiber, along with the meat - lots of vegetables and fruits, which help digest the meat and process it in the body.
  • Prefer cooking forms without oil. Frying is the least recommended option.
  • Drinking plenty of water helps digest the meat and remove toxins and excess substances from the body.
  • Avoid, or reduce, eating processed meats such as sausages.
  • Choose fresh meats prepared in front of you by the butcher. This is especially true for ground meats.

Researchers Identified a Virus that Attacks Cancer Cells

Researchers identified a virus that attacks human cancer cells can distinguishes Healthy cells.
Audio Version Of This Post
Viruses are usually supposed to worry us, but this is not the case with inoculate viruses. those that infect cancer cells and kill them, ignoring healthy cells. So it is no wonder that the search for such viruses attracts many researchers.

The Seneca Valley virus.This virus also known as Senecavirus affects pigs and cows. In recent years it has been found that the virus attacks human cancer cells.

The ability to identify tumors and ignore normal cells tested in two trials. The first in relapsed solid tumors in children and the second in lung carcinoma.

Experiments also found that the immune system was removing the virus from the body. Thus preventing it from completing its anticancer action.
Ongoing research to understand how the Seneca Valley virus may be used for cancer treatments.Researchers at the University of Otago in New Zealand discovered in 2017. That the vi…

New study suggests, people with better sense of smell have a better sense of direction

People with a good sense of smell also have a better sense of direction, suggesting a link between the two systems, a new study suggestsWhy do we have a sense of smell?
The smell of fruit directs us (or at least the lemurs) to the most mature fruit, and even our interpersonal relationships are affected by scents. But some researchers believe that its first use by the first animals, the advantage it gave them over the lack of sense of smell, is navigation. 

Now researchers from Canada have shown that people with a better understanding of smell also navigate better.

The olfactory bulb, the region of the brain that receives information about odors from the nose and makes the initial processing of the smell, exists in many species of animals. It has identified in mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish, and there is a similar structure, even in crabs and insects. 

For some, the bulb is tiny compared to the size of the brain, and for others, it is enormous. A study published several years ago showe…

10 Incredible Scientific Breakthroughs and New Inventions

Scientific discoveries continue to appear every year. new discoveries in a variety of fields, from innovative solutions and treatments for common and deadly diseases to archaeological discoveries, space discoveries, and unusual scandals, learn about 10 groundbreaking scientific discoveries that have taken place and can certainly affect our lives in the near future.

1. Sickle cell anemia can be cured by transplantation of stem cellsSickle cell anemia is a severe and common blood disease in which more than 4 million people worldwide are infected.

In April, a pair of scientists at the National Human Genome Research Institute announced that they had completely cured a 26-year-old man with sickle cell anemia, Through the transplantation of healthy stem cells in the body, they hope and believe that similar results will also occur in the future as more patients receive similar treatment with stem cells.
2. Scientists have been able to stop and reverse the process of aging in miceAging is a natu…
