That's something that leaves me curious about this study (and other similar examples). Are foods preserved in traditional ways as harmful as those hammered through modern food factories?

And to Sarena's point, is a cut of grass fed beef the same as a cheap supermarket steak?

I found the headlines around this alarmist because I find training the sights on meat and pretending that all the other shit that gets consumed is ok clearly doesn't solve anything, even if it does support JW's vegan lifestyle.

On the other hand I find the bacon-bacon-bacon culture of the alternative fitness world excessive.
The rationale for reduced gin intake and the knowledge of the perils of alcoholism and attendant metabolic derangement has almost entirely come from physicians and researchers.
