Adventist Online

I am a fairly new Adventist convert. I have a friend who is a brother who does not eat red meat. He encouraged me to do the same. He says that it says in your body as long as a week. Is this true? Does anyone know that answer? I have also been told the beef used at places like McDonalds and Burger King is really bad for you because it goes thru a extra level of processing. Does anyone know the truth about this ?

Here is a website that deals with why humans should not eat meat.
It is not an adventist site but it still shows that many people are starting teo see the dangers of meat eating.
Negative Health Effects of Red Meat
Regardless, nutritionists hardly need more evidence about the potentially negative health effects of eating red meat. For starters, the saturated animal fat in red meat contributes to heart disease and atherosclerosis. Recent research also shows that frequent red meat eaters face twice the risk of colon cancer as those who indulge less often. Red meat is also thought to increase the risks of rheumatoid arthritis and endometriosis.

Meanwhile, according to the American Dietetic Association, vegetarian diets can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, colon cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney disease, hypertension, obesity, and other debilitating medical conditions. While red meat is a key source of protein and vitamin B12 in North American diets, nutritionists explain that properly planned meat-free diets easily provide these important nutrients while keeping you healthier in the long run.

What are the Negative Health Effects of Red Meat?

It's not very good, especially the processed type red meat. However, small amounts of beef - like 50-100 grams once in a few weeks or months (from home grown cows) is not bad for a healthy person (just my opinion, if your conscience says otherwise, don't listen to me). However, other types of red meat can be really dangerous (beef also if binge eaten): the European and possibly Australian type of sheep are very fat and hard to digest by the stomach, deer can be hard also for stomach but of course few people afford to eat a lot of that anyway. It's good to have your blood tests done yearly, so you know if you have anemia or avitaminosis. The vegetarian diet is the best as a rule, but its extreme forms (like veganism) can sometimes be dangerous for pregnant women, children, old people (sorry, there were several cases, some of them in the media also, not my invention). May God give you the wisdom to make good choices in this as well as other areas of your life! We all learn all the time with God so don't worry, just implement what you know is true and good

I am glad if it helps, God bless you!

You may be interested in watching Forks over Knives(if you can't find it you can rent it from Netflicks or altho I have been and SDA all my life I still have unhealthy eating habits and wow this would give you motivation to cutting out meat and processed foods! LOL
