Thread: YES, MEAT IS SAFE & HEALTHY

Besides being a 'pharmakon', meat is also a 'pharmakos' (scapegoat). As the most symbolic of all foods & as a predilected carrier of meaning, it acts as an adsorbent of societal anxieties. Often presented as scientific 'truth'.

Not.

There is something seriously rotten in contemporary nutrition. The entire chain-of-proof is no longer based on the scientific method but is profoundly corrupted by vested interests and ideological dogma.

Cf. my paper on meat in the post-truth era: sciencedirect.com/science/articl…

The best plant gurus can get out of more controlled studies is the fact that it lowers total cholesterol and LDL-C. But, that's just another belief system - no point wasting time on the meat-gives-you-clogged-arteries propaganda...
