It’s been long touted that red meat consumption may cause cardiovascular diseases and even increase the risk of developing cancers. A recent study brings a sigh of relief from all the steak-lovers out there. Red meat is good for you after all.

(With a caveat: this new claim backed by science only stands for unprocessed red meat! This means no salami, pastrami, sausages, or other charcuterie, rich in salt, fats, sugars and other unholy ingredients.)

In a long and detailed paper about Health effects associated with consumption of unprocessed red meat: a Burden of Proof study published in Nature Medicine on October 10th, a broad team of scientists found weak evidence of association between unprocessed red meat consumption and colorectal cancer, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes, and ischemic heart disease. They also found no evidence of an association between unprocessed red meat and ischemic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke.

So, stop looking for alternative sources of iron, zinc, and B vitamins (mostly B12), red meat can still meet all your needs and expectations. At least until another study comes around.
