DESCRIPTION: Monday, March 12, 2012, the Harvard Health Professionals Follow-up Study and the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study concluded that red meat consumption was associated with living a significantly shorter life—increased cancer mortality, increased heart disease mortality, and increased overall mortality. Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/videos/harvards-meat-and-mortality-studies/ and I’ll try to answer it! Those familiar with the science will not be surprised by the findings of the two new Harvard studies. Remember the NIH-AARP study I profiled in Meat & Mortality (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/meat-mortality/) ? Half a million people studied—the largest forward-looking study on diet and health in history—and they found the exact the same thing. If the science is so strong why isn’t it reflected in our dietary guidelines? See Dietary Guidelines: Science vs. Corporate Interests (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-guidelines-science-versus-corporate-interests/). Nor should it surprise that nuts are so healthy. See Halving Heart Attack Risk (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/halving-heart-attack-risk/) and Is Peanut Butter Good for You? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/is-peanut-butter-good-for-you/) And speaking of nuts, have you seen the NutritionFacts.org tag cloud? (http://nutritionfacts.org/) I have videos on more than a thousand nutrition subjects (http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/).
For my thoughts on the American Meat Institute’s reaction to the study, see my Care2 post here (http://www.care2.com/greenliving/harvards-meat-and-mortality-studies.html).
