    very cool site marisa… on this one i think it’s important to note that this study makes no distinction on the sources of the meat and dairy, and i’m pretty sure their sources are not the right kind. if you eat factory farmed red meat and pasteurized dairy, yes it will adversely affect your health. however, there is documentation (and effects i’ve experience first hand) that indicates eating red meat from free range, grass fed, organic cows is healthy… even the fat. and raw dairy in any form from the same kind of cow is extremely healthy, moreso whole than skim or 1%. just my 2 cents

      Thanks Jonah for checking out my site 🙂

      I am not sure I agree with you that red meat can be exactly healthy for you, but I can understand that it might not be too terrible. As you can see from my blog I do cook meat for my husband. So although I do not eat it ever, I don’t think it is threatening his life. I totally agree with you about raw dairy, although not from cows. I love cheese, so I sometimes enjoy raw cheese from sheep or goats. But as far as cow dairy goes; it scares me. That milk is to help a baby calf become a big grown cow and I certainly want no part in becoming that haha! Also I just know we are not meant to digest that kind of milk so for the most part I stay away from it.

      Thanks for commenting! I am always interested in what people think on these matters.
