How Much Meat Should We Eat
Date: June 11th, 2021 2:00 pm EDT
Duration: 1 Hour
In late 2019 a series of reviews were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine that concluded the same thing that past reviews have concluded: reduced meat intake is associated with a decreased risk for premature death, cardiometabolic disease, and mortality, meaning the risk of getting and dying of diseases like heart disease and type 2 diabetes, as well as the risk of getting cancer and dying from cancer. Therefore, they concluded that people should keep eating red and processed meat. Wait, what?! Yeah, premature death, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, but keep eating your burgers and bacon. How were they able to pull that off? In this live two-hour webinar I explored how Big Meat and Big Sugar have followed in the footsteps of Big Tobacco to warp the scientific literature. I also explained how much meat is expected to shorten your life expectancy compared to other lifestyle behaviors such as smoking.
All of the information will eventually be available for free on NutritionFacts.org, but if you don’t want to wait, you can hear it all now by joining me in this live webinar to get all your questions answered.

All of the content was extremely useful. Dr. G is the best teacher, even via the web, I have ever listened to. Clear, engaging, personable, passionate, patient and very interesting.
It is a very cool feeling that there are over 500 people around the globe, who are interested in nutrition and want to know even more. So keep up the good work.
Dr. Greger did a fantastic job bringing his genius knowledge down to my level. I learned so much on all the ways to research effectively, thoroughly and truthfully. He was fantastic! He went over aspects enough times for me to get what he was talking about. So he didn't go too fast. He went just at the right pace. He did it with humor and fascination on a subject that can be tedious, he made it an adventure. I really appreciate all the work and planning that went into the four hours! Can't wait for him to do it again on another subject!
This course is worth so much money and a huge value to those particularly in university and research. Thank you so much for your time and efforts!
Dr. Greger is a rare treasure and his educational style is engaging. Thank you all!
