Red meat - the new wonder food

Red meat

The Daily Mail has yet another story on the great killer food debate. This time it's... hang on I've forgotten this week's diet narrative...

Forget red meat - you're more likely to get bowel cancer from eating CHOCOLATE: Leading colorectal surgeon on why he eats meat regularly - and how sugar is the true culprit

Ah yes, it's now red meat that leads to everlasting health and sugar causes a ghastly lingering death where your innards are slowly chewed to pieces by poisonous statistics. Something like that.

We eat a lot of fish and very little meat although I wouldn't turn my nose up at a hot beef cob with lots of fried onions. Will we die from a lack of red meat or would the occasional bacon cob ensure our survival? How about a beef and horseradish sandwich with a pint of real ale?

Why shouldn't the NHS dish out these little life-savers? Hot beef and onion cobs at the local doctor's surgery anyone?

Whatever happened to the notion of a balanced and varied diet of sensible portion size from fresh food of decent quality?

It's good for you, it's bad for you , the never ending revolving door policies of those who know better, if notice were taken of all the contradictory statements in this area we would have all starved to death long ago, now about red wine.................

That bull in the picture might be made of red meat, but we won't be getting any of it. By the looks of him, he's there to provide other services.

Demetrius - I agree with you about portions. A beef and horseradish sandwich with two pints of real ale would be better.

Wiggia - I'm sure red wine is actually a vitamin.

Sam - plus scaring off walkers from the look of him.
