Robb Wolf’s Reaction to the Red Meat=Cancer Study
Son Michael sent me Robb Wolf’s Reaction to the red meat=cancer study recently released by Harvard.
Robb Wolf is a biochemist who decided to blend his knowledge of nutrition with healthy exercise. I wrote about his book in my last Tipping Points Essay (No. 41) and will use his analysis to discuss the dangers of eating grains and legumes. That information is in many reputable places now, so I’ll also include some of them. But Robb does a really good job of simply explaining the issues.
What I like about Robb’s reaction is that he goes to some lengths to explain that it’s NOT ok to use badly crafted scientific studies that support your personal belief system. He references some bad studies that support low-carb diets to illustrate and calls for a return to using solid science that searches for accuracy and, dare I say it, “truth.”
