A steak and a beer…

All this stuff in the press about red meat being a probable carcinogen…

So under some rather questionable research methodologies, they have classified ‘consumption of red meat’ as ‘probably carcinogenic’ - Class 2A

But alcoholic beverages are a KNOWN Class 1 ‘carcinogenic to humans’.

IARC red meat Class 2A carcinogenIARC alcohol Class 1 carcinogen

All these folks claiming “that’s it now folks, time to quit meat” - I don’t see them all running around declaring “beer gives you cancer!”


Get the facts:

  1. Nice find!
    Makes me feel better after buying a ton of sausages and bacon at the weekend. Admittedly it was all organic and non processed but I also made a better choice by giving up alcohol at the the same time so all good!!

    • Good man! Is that a “30 day no alcohol” type challenge…or an intention to quit for good?
      I haven’t had a drink for 3 years and 10 months now, and I honestly think it’s once of the best decisions I ever made.
      Good luck to ya brother!

      • Intention to quit for the foreseeable future. Never say never but I don’t want it in my life for a while. Who knows in a year or so I might be sensible enough to be able to handle the occasional glass of wine but if I don’t think so then it’s tee total land for me too my sober friend.

  2. Excellent!
    Yeah, I ‘never say never’ too…there may come a day I enjoy a glass of wine a couple of times per week, but previously in my life, I’ve not proven to be good at the whole moderation thing, and right now, being absolutely free, after about 18 months I found a certain ‘fog lifted’ and I have never seen the world more clearly than I do now. I think the best mental work I have ever done has been over the last 3 years.

    I have a few posts on the topic…

    Good on ya bro!
