The New York Times released a story this week entitled Eat Less Red Meat, Scientists Said. Now Some Believe That Was Bad Advice. The article reveals new research that suggests the negative health effects of eating red meats, like beef, are negligible and do not justify recommending normal, everyday folks stop consuming their favorite proteins.
I spoke with Dr. Jennifer Laheska, a Registered Dietitian from Canyon, TX about the new research. Dr. Laheska discusses her takeaways from the article, and the positive role Registered Dietitians play in the furthering of scientific research on this topic.
