In this video, we’re going to talk about red meat. Is red meat good for you, or is red meat bad for you?

 Many of the well known so-called dangers of eating red meat don’t seem to hold up. 

I don’t recommend consuming any processed meats. I recommend consuming organic grass-fed meat. Grass-fed red meat is not going to cause serious issues.

There are certain toxic chemicals that are generated when you heat protein, especially if you heat it with sugar on it like barbecue sauce. It’s best if you don’t overly cook red meat because the more you heat the meat, the more chemicals there can be. 

You can also lessen these chemicals by adding:

• Mustard
• Garlic 
• Black pepper
• Herbs (basil, hot pepper, oregano, rosemary)

People who already have excess iron may have a big problem with consuming red meat because it’s loaded with iron. Iron can accumulate and become toxic if a person consumes too much. If you’re consuming red meat and you don’t feel well after, you should have your iron tested because you may have iron overload. 
Iron can affect the:

• Heart
• Brain
• Liver 

Genetic conditions that can make iron overload worse:
• Hemochromatosis
• Beta thalassemia 
• Sickle cell

Action steps:
• Don’t overly cook meat
• Consume grass-fed organic red meat
• Get your iron checked
• If you have one of the genetic conditions above, you may want to donate blood
• Avoid: supplements with iron, fortified foods, alcohol, iron cookware
