    Red and processed meat linked to increased risk of heart disease, Oxford study shows

    Globally coronary heart diseases (caused by narrowed arteries that supply the heart with blood) claim nearly nine million lives each year1, the largest of any disease, and present a huge burden to health systems. Until now, it has been unclear whether eating meat increases the risk of heart disease, and if this varies for different kinds of meat.

    Researchers at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Population Health have conducted the largest systematic review of the prospective evidence to date, including thirteen cohort studies involving over 1.4 million people. The study participants completed detailed dietary assessments, and their health was tracked for up to 30 years. The results are published today in Critical reviews in Food Science and Nutrition.

    Overall, the evidence from the analysis indicated that:
    • Each 50 g/day higher intake of processed meat (e.g. bacon, ham, and sausages) increased the risk of coronary heart disease by 18%.
    • Each 50 g/day higher intake of unprocessed red meat (such as beef, lamb and pork) increased the risk of coronary heart disease by 9%.
    • There was no clear link between eating poultry (such as chicken and turkey) and an increased risk of coronary heart disease.

    The findings may be because of the high content of saturated fat in red meat, and of sodium (salt) in processed meat. High intakes of saturated fat increase levels of harmful low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, whilst excess salt consumption raises blood pressure. Both LDL cholesterol and high blood pressure are well-established risk factors for coronary heart disease.:

    Study strengthens links between red meat and heart disease:

      Little about alcoholism

      many alcoholics find themselves drinking alone

      We have at least one, maybe two here at TC with the problem. Ms. Tinkles is a day drunk and drinks alone.

        Is charcoal carcinogenic?

        Charcoal itself is not a carcinogen, but cooking with charcoal does have a link to cancer. There are two main reasons for this. The first risk of charcoal use is that you’re cooking foods at very high temperatures, the second is that charcoal cooking creates a lot of smoke. Both smoke and high-temperature cooking of certain meats are known to be carcinogenic.

        Charring creates heterocyclic amines (HCAs)

        When you grill meat at high temperatures, you create heterocyclic amines (HCAs).

        HCAs are known carcinogens. They are formed when high temperatures cause amino acids in meat to react with the creatine in meat. This reaction creates the black char marks you see on foods and grill. It only occurs when you cook muscle meats because they are the only food that contain creatine. Muscle meats include:

          Alcoholism and relationships (why are you still alone/lonely?)

          Seeking help

          The vast majority of outcomes from alcoholism are negative, and damaged relationships are a common byproduct of alcoholism. Anyone who is struggling with an alcohol abuse disorder should seek professional help to gain the proper coping skills and tools to overcome this addiction.
