Meat And Cheese Together – They Are Likely As Bad As Smoking!

Eating Meat And Cheese Together Is Likely As Bad As Smoking!

Jewish kosher laws prohibit the eating of meat and cheese together, but what does science say about it?

Recent Research Into Eating Meat And Cheese Together Reveals That ..

Avoiding eating meat and cheese together!

A high-protein diet during middle age makes you nearly twice as likely to die and four times more likely to die of cancer, but moderate protein intake is good for you after 65.

But how much protein we should eat has long been a controversial topic and was muddled by the popularity of protein-heavy diets such as Paleo and Atkins.

Before this study, researchers had never shown a definitive correlation between high protein consumption and mortality risk but it does now.

“The research shows that a low-protein diet in middle age is useful for preventing cancer and overall mortality, through a process that involves regulating IGF-I and possibly insulin levels,” said co-author Eileen Crimmins, the AARP Chair in Gerontology at USC. “However, we also propose that at older ages, it may be important to avoid a low-protein diet to allow the maintenance of healthy weight and protection from frailty".

Crucially, the researchers found that plant-based proteins, such as those from beans, did not seem to have the same mortality effects as animal proteins.

Rates of cancer and death also did not seem to be affected by controlling for carbohydrate or fat consumption, suggesting that animal protein is the main culprit.

“The majority of Americans are eating about twice as much proteins as they should, and it seems that the best change would be to lower the daily intake of all proteins but especially animal-derived proteins,” Longo said. “But don’t get extreme in cutting out protein; you can go from protected to malnourished very quickly".

Another Study About Avoiding Meat And Cheese Together

Another study, published in Cell Metabolism on March 4, 2014, shows that middle-aged people who eat a diet high in animal proteins from milk, meat and cheese are more likely to die of cancer than someone who eats a low-protein diet.

The research also showed that the people who ate lots of meat and dairy were more likely to die at an earlier age.

“There’s a misconception that because we all eat, understanding nutrition is simple. But the question is not whether a certain diet allows you to do well for three days, but can it help you survive to be 100?” study co-author Valter Longo, Edna M. Jones professor of biogerontology at the USC Davis School of Gerontology and director of the USC Longevity Institute in Los Angeles, said in a press release.

People produce less of the growth hormone after the age of 65, at which time they become frailer and lose muscle.

For the new study, researchers looked at 6,318 adults over the age of 50.

On average, about 16 percent of their total daily calories came from protein and two-thirds of that amount was from animal protein.

The team divided the group into high, moderate and low-protein diet eaters.

Protein could come from plant or animal sources and high-protein diets were made up of at least 20 percent protein.

Moderate-protein eaters consumed 10 to 19 percent of their daily calories from protein.

Low-protein diets consisted of less than 10 percent of daily calories from protein.

People who ate high-protein diets were 74 percent more likely to die before the end of the study than those who ate low-protein diets.

Decreasing protein consumption from moderate to low levels reduced early mortality risk by 21 percent.

There Is So Much Meat And Cheese In The American Diet

Why did decide to check out the research on this?

Because I had some ground beef and looked for a recipe on the Internet.

Almost every recipe that I found involved meat, cream and cheese.

Obesity is such a major problem in the US and add and to that the new research on meat and cheese together !

So How Much Salt Do We Need?

Salt! We Need Salt In Our Diet Every Single Day!

The American Heart Association recommends no more than 1.5g of salt per day while the USDA recommends no more than 2.3g per day, and that’s a big difference.

To make things more confusing, the most recent Institute of Medicine report on sodium says there is very little to no evidence that going below 2.3 gr of sodium per day will actually benefit anyone, and may be harmful!

So Why Do Doctors Tell Us To Cut Down On Salt?

As I type, the average adult’s intake of sodium is between 10-12g because of processed foods and that’s probably a lot for the kidneys to handle!

Pro-salt campaigners argue however that any healthy body will process just the right amount of salt it needs and the kidneys will dispose of any surplus.
