The idea of minimizing red meat keeps coming up in a number of flawed studies. Too much iron may be an issue in men but otherwise, no valid mechanism has ever been shown for any health issues with red meat.
In many daily newspaper and those magazines for women (that my sister and mother read) you can see big headlines: "red meat promotes cancer" and similar. And in the last sentence they always say that those researches were done on lab rats (I mean people) that were given hot dogs and sausages.
They don't want us to eat meat because it's healthy and if we eat it we won't have health problems and we won't have to buy their medications!
