Does red meat consumption lead to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease? A recent analysis of multiple studies showed that red meat eaters did have a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease and, in fact, all cause mortality. However, they found no biological causation for this. Rather, people who ate red meat were also likely to smoke, consume alcohol and engage in risky behaviors and that was ultimately the cause of disease and death. Red meat does not cause any significant health risk. People who eat red meat just need to get their lives under control.
The longer you can delay gratification, the greater the ultimate rewards for your actions. Rather than chasing small rewards and constantly starting from square one, build some momentum and chase a larger pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
