Mayo Clinic study of more than one million people shows carnivores have higher mortality rates than vegetarians.
The Mayo Clinic just announced a new study published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. The Study echoes what many of us have been saying for some time. Meat will kill you, eventually. Technically we all get there, but further evidence is mounting that carnivores live shorter lives.
Mortality rates have again been proven to be higher for red meat-eaters across all causes of death. This is not some silly study performed on a tiny sample size. This study sampled one million individuals across the entire United States, Europe, and China over a longitudinal period of 5-1/2 to 28 years. In addition, this study cross-references thirteen other studies that included 1.5 million people.
The expanded study yielded incredible results that found that the consumption of red meat, both processed and non, led to higher mortality risks. This also included heart disease and cancer. “Despite variability in the data, the evidence is consistent that increased intake of red meat, especially processed red meat, is associated with increased all-cause mortality,” the study revealed.
Given these findings, the lead scientists behind this study recommend that “physicians should encourage patients to limit animal products when possible, and substitute red meat and processed red meat with plant-based foods.” If you needed one more reason why you should not eat animals…self-preservation should seal the deal. Save the animals, and karma ultimately prolongs your life in the process.
