    It's better to die from a steak than a salad.

      particularly if you wanna die with your boots on; how silly would you look with boots and a salad?!

        Notice the article said, "In contrast, routine consumption of fish, chicken, turkey and other poultry decreased the risk of death by a small amount."

        In other words, death is on the horizon. Period.
        If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

          In Britain we just had a small study of vegetarians -v- red meat eaters flagged up on the BBC. Although vegetarians were less likely to die of various cancers, they had higher instances of bowel cancer than red meat eaters. Go figure.

            This is a crux of this kind of generalization. You simply cannot account accurately for all the variables. Did they account for family history of the individuals, ethnic background, drinking alcohol, posting on T&FN message board? I am afraid, their conclusions can hardly be supportable.

            Pego says, enjoy your steak and don't fear. You'll die of something, eventually.

              Thank you, Pego, I shall continue with my Friday steaks. Chicken and fish are eaten during the week, but nothing to me tastes as delicious as a huge slab of red meat medium-well done on a platter.

                  And I won't give up my flash-torched ribs!

                        And what about drinking alcohol while posting on T&FN message board??

                          EVERYTHING will eventually kill you, so just sit back and enjoy the ride. I only eat red meat 7 days a week, so I should be OK. If they ever find out the chocolate limits your lifespan, then my wife is going to be very wealthy, very soon!

                              The trick is to live a long and fun life and die just before everyone else does.
