Dr. Walter Willett Unravels Mysteries of Red Meat

Red-MeatDr. Walter Willett from the Harvard School of Public Health’s Chairmen of Nutrition is a cow's best pal.

Earlier during the month, Willett and team, who recently carried out a study on the association between diet and health, made a report public in context to their two-decade-long study which was focused on close to 100,000 people. In the reports, it has been claimed that the quantity of red meat they consumed was associated with a massive increase in the odds of premature death.

Along the same lines, an associate professor from the Barwon Psychiatric Research Unit of Deakin University, Felice Jacka, investigated the relationship between the intake of red meat and the existence of anxiety and depressive disorders in over 1,000 women belonging to the Geelong region.

While expressing his views regarding the findings of the study, along with mentioning what all consequences it can have in the time to follow, he said: “We had originally thought that red meat might not be good for mental health, as studies from other countries had found red meat consumption to be associated with physical health risks, but it turns out that it actually may be quite important”.

The findings by Jacka have been made available in the recent edition of the journal Psychotherapy Psychosomatics.

The idea that red meat may not be all that great for you is not exactly innovative, but it seems like carnivores cried fetid. Willett, in this regard, has answered a lot many questions presented by his critics during the week in progress.

His main motive was that individuals mainly formulate their preferences in terms of various factors, health consequences, and all. A plenty of religious beliefs, issues related to the environment, and many more thing are also in window of focus when it comes to going for red meat.
