Red Meat Is Responsible for One in Ten Early Deaths

Man, I love red meat. Its so delicious. But lets face it. Its not the healthiest thing to eat. But even knowing that, its not stopping us from sinking our teeths into a juicy bloody steak all too often. A new research is suggesting that red meat is behind one in ten early deaths. Perhaps its time to cut back?
The study, carried out by the Harvard School of Public Health says that regularly eating red meat will massively increase your risk of heart disease and cancer. The results come from studying more than 120,000 people over 28 years. Now that's a huge sample size.
The paper, published in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine suggests that an extra daily serving of processed red meat, which is equivalent to a single hot dog or two strips of bacon would raise mortality rates by 20 per cent.
The effect is smaller for unprocessed red meat like steak—though the researchers don't know exactly why—which increases mortality rates by 13 per cent. Professor Frank Hu, told The Guardian:
"This study provides clear evidence that regular consumption of red meat, especially processed meat, contributes substantially to premature death. On the other hand, choosing more healthful sources of protein in place of red meat can confer significant health benefits by reducing chronic disease morbidity [illness] and mortality."
Human waste will never be the same again. Why? Because U.K has started using our poop to run its 'Bio-Bus' which has now taken to the streets. The bus runs on biomethane gas which is produced from treated human waste, and unused food. Don't worry. They have those impurities and bad odors removed, so you don't have to 'experience' the smell.
