THREAD ON MEAT.

I'm sure you've heard by now that a bunch of studies was published last night on red meat. Their conclusion - the evidence for health risks is small and of low certainty. annals.org/aim (1/6)
.@DrTiff_ & I wrote an editorial for the studies. Our conclusions (no surprise to those who follow me): more observational studies aren't helping, the messaging isn't working, we might try pointing to environmental or ethical arguments instead. annals.org/aim/fullarticl… (2/6)
This is all clearly controversial. @ginakolata wrote an excellent article on all of this in the @nytimes: nytimes.com/2019/09/30/hea… (3/6)
How can experts disagree so vehemently? I have some thoughts on that, that I hope you will read today, also at @nytimes @UpshotNYT nytimes.com/2019/10/01/ups… (4/6)
I also think we should start talking more about the environmental effects of beef (bad). The sad news is that all these new ground beef substitutes may not be enough. Go read about that today as well @nytimes @UpshotNYT nytimes.com/2019/10/01/ups… (5/6)
If you want to read an opposing viewpoint, Frank Hu of
