Heart Doc VIP with Dr. Joel Kahn

Jul 26, 2019

I promise you: if red meat healed your health issues, I would report the science as it was. Yet, we know that increased red meat is associated with heart disease, cancer, diabetes and death. These past few weeks provided 3 more reasons to avoid red meat. These include the research on the meat rich Paleo diet and increased levels in the blood of TMAO. It also included more data about the concerning spread of the Lone Star tick and meat allergies. Finally, humans are not mice and we do not make neu5Gc. It turns out we have antibodies to neu5Gc from eating red meat from other species which is rich in neu5GC and creates inflammation and atherosclerosis. Overall, eat whole plant foods and your health will be protected.
