Meat-lover Michael Symon Blasts WHO Meat Study

Meat-lover Michael Symon Blasts WHO Meat Study

The World Health Organization has declared processed meats such as sausages, bacon, and ham to be carcinogenic to humans

Chef Michael Symon is known for his love of meat.

Earlier this week, meat lovers everywhere bemoaned the results of a new study released by the World Health Organization that declared processed meats such as sausages, bacon, and ham to be carcinogenic to humans-- lumping the beloved proteins into the same category as cigarettes and asbestos.

But the news for carnivores got worse. WHO research also labeled red meats like non-cured pork, beef, and lamb as "probably carcinogenic.”

Amid the outcry from meat producers and lovers everywhere was a particularly long Facebook post from carnivore-centric celebrity chef Michael Symon. Symon, best known as a co-star of ABC's "The Chew", who penned a cookbook “Carnivore: 120 Recipes for Meat Lovers," called the study a "witch hunt" and a "disservice" for lumping in mass produced meat with “crafted artisan products.”

“To say I am disappointed in your witch hunt..errr "research" would be to put it mildly a understatement,” the Food Network star posted. “First off why wouldn't you take this opportunity to talk about the huge division of meat and meat products that are out there. To group factory farmed, mass produced products loaded with hormones, words we can't pronounce and man made nitrates with beautifully raised, produced & crafted artisan products is an incredible disservice to those who work so hard to do things the right way.”

He also blasted media organizations for using gimmicky, click bait headlines for exacerbating the problem.

“Also when digging deeper in the article it mentions that a diet filled these so called deadly products effects less than 1% of people or 30,000 people WORLDWIDE ANNUALLY. To put that in perspective deaths caused by car accidents and smoking where 1.3 million and 900,000 last year.”

Symon caps off his rant-- which has received over 45,000 likes-- with a personal anecdote about an elderly relative who clearly wasn’t phased by the research.

“On a happier note my 97 year grandfather called me today laughing about the article while enjoying a BLT from his couch.”

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

Let’s face it. After we lose those pounds of fat and are happy with the way we look, the main purpose of eating like this is to feel good and live long. This book helped me understand the science of heart disease and draw an important conclusion the true answer to what causes heart disease is, “we don’t know”, but the so called “lipid hypothesis” which hypothesizes that it’s due to a high concentration of fat in your blood is hard to believe and based on weak science. Rather, cardio-vascular disease (CVD) is likely due to inflammation, caused by insulin, caused by glucose. After this book, I resolved that I will never take a statin to lower my cholesterol – ever. -/u/b-rad62

What an eye opener ! The books helps you understand drug studies and how they are controlled by the drug companies. This is a must read for any ketoer. Dr. Kendrick makes you realize peer review is not really a good thing all the time, when new ideas go against conventional ideas. His arguments against statins make you realize how the drug companies lie for profits. The books makes you think critically and it analyzes papers related to health and makes you realize that statistics can be twisted to support the researcher’s bias. Dr. Kendrick also points out that some of the treatment for heart diseases, like stent placement and bypass surgery have not been tested properly for effectiveness.

Dr. Malcolm Kendrick

Let’s face it. After we lose those pounds of fat and are happy with the way we look, the main purpose of eating like this is to feel good and live long. This book helped me understand the science of heart disease and draw an important conclusion the true answer to what causes heart disease is, “we don’t know”, but the so called “lipid hypothesis” which hypothesizes that it’s due to a high concentration of fat in your blood is hard to believe and based on weak science. Rather, cardio-vascular disease (CVD) is likely due to inflammation, caused by insulin, caused by glucose. After this book, I resolved that I will never take a statin to lower my cholesterol – ever. -/u/b-rad62

What an eye opener ! The books helps you understand drug studies and how they are controlled by the drug companies. This is a must read for any ketoer. Dr. Kendrick makes you realize peer review is not really a good thing all the time, when new ideas go against conventional ideas. His arguments against statins make you realize how the drug companies lie for profits. The books makes you think critically and it analyzes papers related to health and makes you realize that statistics can be twisted to support the researcher’s bias. Dr. Kendrick also points out that some of the treatment for heart diseases, like stent placement and bypass surgery have not been tested properly for effectiveness.

Gary Taubes

Absolutely a must for a deep understanding of what this is all about. Taubes is highly credentialed, and lays out bullet proof logic backed by volumes of data. Not an easy read, take your time. -/u/b-rad62

My first keto book ever. Changed my life without doubt. And yours if you’re reading this. - /u/dem0n0cracy

Extremely interesting book that is an absolute pageturner with undeniable historical details into the production of sugar and how it has led to one of the greatest chronic disease climaxes of our time. Great first book. - /u/dem0n0cracy

Nice for lay people - much less technical than GCBC, but useful for a recourse - /u/dem0n0cracy

Nina Teicholz

First, an absolute page turner of excellent investigative writing and research on how and why the conventional wisdom is anti-fat, especially anti-saturated fat, and why it is wrong. Second, the education you’ll get from understanding the fats that will make up the majority of your calories will be very comforting on this journey. You’ll be armed with up-to-date knowledge. -/u/b-rad62
