Usually, studies separate red & processed meat but still refer to "red & processed meat" together to damn one with the other. This study defines red meat as the SUM of so-called unprocessed meat (mostly processed in my view) & processed meat.

Correlation coefficients of 0.59 and 0.52, seriously? I don't know anything about nutrition but last time I took a stats course that meant a crappy relationship.

I wonder how the quality of American processed meats compares with Italian and French processed meats? Still suspect that the burger is being blamed for what the bun does though.

Because it is inversely casual but confounded.

And did they use relative risk for their results? It looks like they did.

I've only found one (raw) burger I can buy that doesn't contain some form of grain, and usually some type of sugar is on the ingredients list too. I'd be surprised if there were any fast food burgers in existence that were refined carbohydrate free.

Someone should run a study where they define vegan food as anything plant-based that contains lots of Madagascar bamboo shoots.

Considering that most processed meats are eaten as sandwiches or in buns and often with chips or fries or on pizza, I find even the “processed meat is bad” relationship questionable. Prosciutto on salad ≠ pepperoni on pizza.

Totally disingenuous to conduct these kinds of studies as if hot dogs are the same as grass fed grass finished beef. It also makes a big difference if antibiotics are used or pesticide rich corn and grain fed to these animals.

How “experts” frame and use words matters greatly. Tricky and disingenuous to the masses!

How many of these meats are consumed outside of a carbohydrate laden meal?
