The report brings together statistics from various previous studies that say eating meat can be an important source of protein and vitamins when eaten in moderation. "The goal...

Dutch scientists claim they will be able to produce edible meat grown from stem cells within a year, and believe lab-grown meat in the future will ultimately end the world's reliance on meat from livestock. And furthermore, the researchers predict that over the next few decades the world population will balloon so rapidly that there will not be enough livestock to feed everyone. As a result, laboratory-grown beef, chicken and pork would become necessary. A burger, grown from 10,000 stem...

A new study on over 30,000 Swedish women found that those who eat a lot of red meat may be putting themselves at an increased risk of having a stroke. The team found that those in the top tenth for red meat consumption, who ate at least 102 grams or 3.6 ounces every day, were 42 percent more likely to suffer stroke because of blocked blood flow in the brain compared to women who ate less than 25 grams of red meat per day. According to Reuters, heavy red meat diets have been linked to a...

A new study suggests that people who consume large quantities of red meat may have a greater chance of developing certain cancers of the throat and stomach than people who limit their intake of steaks and hamburgers. Reuters health reported Friday that researchers found only a small number of the 500,000 older U.S. adults studied developed cancers of the esophagus or stomach.  However, the risks were relatively greater among those who ate a lot of red meat. Study participants in the...

Since being linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer of the pancreas, red meat has been found by a team of US researchers to be a possible cause of bladder cancer. There is some good news however; scientists found no links between beef, bacon, hamburger, sausage or steak and bladder cancer. The bad news: the team did observe a "positive nonlinear association for red meat cold cuts" and bladder cancer. The culprits are nitrates and nitrites which are added to meat...

A study on thousands of Europeans suggests that eating less meat may in fact help you keep slim and trim. Dr. Anne-Claire Vergnaud of Imperial College London and colleagues found that people who ate more meat gained more weight over five years than those who ate less meat, but had the same amount of calories. The team wrote in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that the "results suggest that a decrease in meat consumption may improve weight management." The study included more than...

US researchers revealed a study on Monday that showed meats such as bacon, sausage, hot dogs and other processed meats can raise the risk of heart disease and diabetes. Unprocessed meats, including beef, pork and lamb appeared not to raise the risk of heart attacks and diabetes, the researchers said, suggesting that salt and preservatives may be the real cause of the serious health problems associated with eating meat. The study, which was taken from analysis of other research, did not look...

A technology that allows pig stem cells to be converted into strips of meat might one day offer a solution to world hunger and a green alternative to raising livestock, scientists say. Researchers in the Netherlands have been growing pork in laboratory environments since 2006, and while they acknowledge they have not perfected the texture or even tasted the meat, they say the technique has broad implications for the world's food supply. "If we took the stem cells from one pig and multiplied...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
