Red meat: What makes it unhealthy?

March 14, 2012|By Eryn Brown, Los Angeles Times
  • Scientists said Monday that eating red meat was associated with an increased mortality risk in a recent study. But what is it in a juicy steak that makes it potentially unhealthy?

On Monday, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health released study results showing that red meat consumption was associated with a higher risk of early death. The more red meat — beef, pork or lamb, for the purposes of the research — study participants reported they ate, the more likely they were to die during the period of time that data collection took place (more than 20 years).

So what is it in red meat that might make it unhealthy?

No one is sure, exactly, but the authors of the Harvard study mention a few possible culprits in their paper in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

First, eating red meat has been linked to the incidence of heart disease.  The saturated fat and cholesterol in beef, pork and lamb are believed to play a role in the risk of coronary heart disease.  The type of iron found in red meat, known as heme iron, has also been linked to heart attacks and fatal heart disease.  Sodium in processed meats may increase blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease. Other chemicals that are used in processed meats may play a role in heart disease as well, by damaging blood vessels.

Red meat has also been linked to increased risks of colorectal and other cancers.  Again, heme iron could be a culprit — it is more easily absorbed into the body than other forms of iron, and can cause oxidative damage to cells — as could compounds that are created when meat is cooked at a high temperature.  Preservatives used in processed meats also may play a role, scientists have said, because they convert into carcinogenic compounds in the body.

Migraine Headaches

Migraine Headaches


Suffer from heartburn or migraines? Instead of heading straight to the medicine cabinet, you may want to check out the kitchen first. “Many foods provide vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that help ease ailments and possibly prevent them,” says Susan Lark, MD, a physician and nutritionist in Los Altos, California. “Even if you take medications to relieve symptoms, what you eat can help as well,” Dr. Lark says. Next time you experience one of the following minor conditions, just open your refrigerator. (If your symptoms persist or worsen, consult your doctor.)

For Migraine Headaches

Try: Fatty fish such as trout, sardines, and herring

Preliminary research suggests that eating fatty fish, which are high in long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, may lower the body’s production of prostaglandins, hormone-like chemicals that can induce inflammation and pain, causing migraines. “We found that adolescents who took 1.25 grams of fish oil daily for two months experienced fewer headaches, which were less severe and didn’t last as long,” explains Zeev Harel, MD, the lead researcher on the study and an associate professor of pediatrics at Brown University.

How much? Have one four- to six-ounce serving two or three times a week, says Dr. Harel. Or consult your doctor about taking fish-oil supplements.

Avoid: Processed meats, artificial sweeteners, MSG, red wine, chocolate, hard cheeses, and citrus. Research shows that 20 percent of migraine sufferers are sensitive to one or more of these foods

Heart-Shaped Cake

Making a heart-shaped Valentine’s Day cake without a special pan is easy when you follow these step-by-step directions.

A heart-shaped Valentine’s Day cake is so impressive, but why spend extra money on a pan you will use only once a year? Follow these simple directions for a perfect cake. You’ll need to start at least a day ahead, so be sure to factor that into your plans.

You will need:

– Your favorite cake recipe or mix
– A can of cherry pie filling
– Two 8″ round cake pans
– Clean white paper
– Scissors
– Your favorite cake frosting
– Spatula

1. Make your favorite cake recipe in two 8″ round cake pans.

2. After taking the cakes out of the oven and slightly cooling, turn each onto a large, round dinner plate. Cover each with plastic wrap and freeze.

The next day:

1. Trace a circle from the clean, round cake pan onto a sheet of clean white paper. Trim the circle about 1/16″ smaller all the way around. Now, fold the circle in half to cut a perfectly symmetrical heart-shaped template.

2. Take out the frozen cakes. Place the heart template on the top of the first one. Using a sharp, pointy knife cut the cake to the shape of the template. Pull off the extra pieces of cake for snacking later. Follow this same step with the other half of the cake.

3. Spoon the cherry pie filling onto the top of one of the cake hearts. Be careful to use a minimum of the juice. Place the cherries at least one inch from the edges of the heart all the way around.

4. Carefully place the second heart onto the first so that the cherries don’t move near the edge.

5. Using your spatula, fill the gap around the sides of the cake with frosting.

6. Next, spread a thin coating of frosting over the top and sides of the cake. Return the cake to the freezer for one hour. Cover and save the remaining frosting.

* Note: The initial freezing of the cake and the freezing after the first coat of frosting is important, since it’s what makes the cake easier to handle. It also helps to keep the frosting crumb free.

7. One hour later – Spread the remaining frosting on the top and sides of the cake with decorative strokes.

There, you have it! A perfect, heart-shaped Valentine’s Day cake for the special someone in your life.

SAY NO TO 鵝肝醬 Fois Gras

SAY NO TO 鵝肝醬 Fois Gras

Day to day we eat food that are tasty, delicious & did we ever stop to wonder where these food comes from & their origination? One fine example is the one below which I’ve received that I’m currently forwarding to gain awareness.
Thank you for sharing & your valuable time in analyzing.

Foie Gras
แปลว่าfat liver นั่นเอง
Foie Gras means “Fat Liver”  Foie Gras 的意思是肥的肝臟
It’s a very luxurious menu that originates from France 這是一道起源於法國,非常豪華的菜
But this dish comes from FORCE FEEDING a goose to make them develop FATTY LIVER DISEASE

Let’s see the source of thiswonderfuldish

The geese are forced to eat… even if it does not desire to

The metal pipe pass through the throat to stomacheven if it does not want to eat anything To make the liver bigger and fatter the geese are kept in …..
這金屬的管子穿過喉嚨到胃  就算鵝已經不想吃任何東西了  但是牠們仍然被強迫餵食

Cages that are very small and they are forced to stay in one position to avoid using energy, thus converting all food into fat.

籠子非常的小  為了避免鵝浪費力氣  牠們被強迫只能以同一種姿勢站著  這樣可以把所有食物轉換成脂肪
How sad their eyes show他們的眼睛看起來是如此哀傷

Their legs were bloated from long standing everyday. Not allowed to sleep because they will be held to eat again.

他們的腳因每天長時間站立而浮腫   牠們不能睡覺 因為牠們要保持吃個不停的狀態
Although they try to defend themselves, but refusal is useless
How sad this kind of life can be…

They are forced to eat until they are dead & their bodies can’t stand it anymore. You can still see that the food is still in it’s mouth.
 牠們被強迫餵食到死去,直到牠們的身體再也無法站立  你可以看見牠們的嘴巴還有食物

Those who survive have cramped to inflamed until their asses bloodied as it’s shit comes out with it. What other pains & sufferings can be more than such inflicted tortures. 

Not only their mouth & throat hurts all the time, their stomach ache from the food, fats bloated their legs with no sleep and no exercise. But also no free will for life to see the sky or river.

The result to get abeautifuland white liver that becomes unusually big like this. As Liver canned from aboard.

Stop being so selfish to make predation from now on please, every single life also has their mind & value.
Please forgive my poor English as I tried my best to revise this message. Kindly help to forward it out as these poor geese in other parts of the world do not deserve to be in such deplorable state of life.
