You’ve been hearing for decades that it’s a good idea to cut back on red meat. But a controversial studyTrusted Source, released last week in Annals of Internal Medicine, turned that long-standing advice on its head and started a contentious debate.
It found no statistical evidence that eating less red or processed meat will provide health benefits to an individual.
The flip-flopping of nutritional advice is nothing new. Eggs, fat, coffee, and even chocolate have gone from bad to good and sometimes back again. The volleying is enough to confuse anyone.
How can you avoid getting whiplash from health advice that seems to change almost every day?
And more importantly, how do you know what you can trust?
