I think it goes in stages...eggs are good for you, eggs are bad, milk makes strong bones, milk has cholesterol... Humans are omniverous...we need proteins and fats that meats provide us. We may eat more meat than we really need to, but meat has always been neccesary for our health and growth. If you look long enough you will find a study that will show everything we do, eat, touch, breath etc will give some one cancer. Gotta spend those grants on something, and to get more grants gotta have results.

Yes. Too much of everything can lead us to bad health. We are taught to eat the right kind of food in right amount, and everything should really be right. Rated positive.

If you eat nothing but meat, you can get some form of cancer (it's either prostate or intestinal, something like that). But, I think you run that risk if you eat too much of anything.

cancer and heart disease. These and other concerns, such as those over safety, have led to declining consumption of some types of red meat in regions

I think you have to be careful what you believe but many things could be true. They keep changing what is good and bad I don really think they know.

Yes, it can couse cancer. Many individuals worry that a meatless diet won't give them enough protein. The fact is, most Americans eat about two times the amount of protein they need, and the human body will only utilize the protein it really needs. When we eat too much protein and don't exercise, the excess calories not needed for immediate use are converted into fat.
