An interesting result to an article that I wrote recently, The Effect of Diet Choices on Longevity, the research found that a diet devoid of red and processed meat resulted in the greatest expected longevity. On 3/3/22, AHA News published the preliminary results of two long-term national studies, the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. On average, over a 32-year study period, those who consumed the most red meat had a 12% increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and a 28% increased chance of dying from the condition.
These two studies with different methods and data sources point indicate comparable conclusions: for health, minimize consumption of mammalian flesh.
