Monday Moaning: Too Much Could To.
In a way I might have rubbed against this before but I don’t mind as the latest news was that my beloved brisk is going to be put on the black list next to drinking and smoking. Okay not so much the brisk but red meat in general.
In case one wonders how far that reaches, well pretty much every cow and even some pork falls in that category though there are differences per country I think. Still I will concentrate on something other as well and it is in the title.
The title holds the key words you will most likely read a lot of the time but never noticed them or we even have turned deaf to and create ourselves another assumption of what is said. Which is pretty crazy that we fall on to one side when there is still some inconclusiveness to report.
But lets kick of with beef and in this case use what the investigators and scientist have said.
Too Much hamburgers/red meat could cause colon cancer.
Now did you read hamburgers will cause or could cause and is after eating a burger a week or too much burgers.
Researchers set out to find a cause and most the time look into one direction. Either could or couldn’t. I do ask how this is tested. Get a mouse to eat only beef. Pretty sure he would die within a year. I think if I only ate beef I would to. You’d be missing other nutrition’s our body needs. Surely enough you can’t test like that.
Now new techniques can clone parts of colon with a cancer to see if you can cure them with a made medicine. Pretty sure it does not work the other way. Clone a colon and add beef to it to see if cancer will form.
It sound outrageous to even think this way but very little is known on how these are conducted. All we hear as normal citizens is how bad something turns out to be if we eat Too Much of something. The things in the media we read are that smoking Could cause cancer. The thing is they assume to know and they tell us that things could develop if blah blah. And then there are some people who take it the wrong way and go to an extreme and cause trouble.
To have been addicted to smoking I know what it is like. But I also know from many reports that they most the time say, Too Much will cause or it Could cause. So which one is it? Yeah it was me who took the risk only to hear that there are people now who cause an uproar and say smokers should not be treated anymore. Or fat people for that matter.
We none smokers (most of them fuckers are even ex-smokers) tell me I can’t enter a café smoking. That every café or coffee shop should be a none smoking area. And to top it of they say you do not have to choose to go in. Remember that line.
What if I start a café for the smokers? Can I then say to, you do not have to choose to go in? No I can’t. All of a sudden my choice is taken from me. And we call this a world where we have free choice.
Now back to the meat and those researchers.
In my country we have approximately 15 million people living of which a 5000 have colon cancer (somewhere along that number). That is a shocking 0,03% approx. Fair enough that every cancer patient is one to many. Thought here we are saying the cause is beef or rather eating Too Much beef. And that said it is not said it was the cause since it Could have been.
The US has about a 100.000 cases per year (not using exact numbers here) this is against a populations of 322 million we also come to a 0,03%.
Now I am not a researcher but if by any change a US citizen eats approximately an average of 35 kilo’s (70 pounds) since this is pork and lamb as well I will half it to make it easy to a 17,5 KG of red meat a year. And this is a home based research with numbers from 2012. It was said it would rise a little in the following year, though I am pretty sure after the news hamburgers kill it might reduce again. The 5% of vegetarians are not taken into account. I think it pretty okay having 1,5 Kg of meat or about 10 burgers a month.
I would have to say the numbers for my country are not that much different. Having gone through many numbers that were gathered over the passing year that would be my conclusion as they mimic close to the US.
All that crap said eating that much, according to researchers will cause cancer as it is Too Much.
Have you ben reading and paid attention. These are always there words. Too much of anything s bad for you as it Could all kinds of illnesses.
If that is true we might also go and say Too Much sports is bad for you. Though that is something you would not hear anyone say. Not a researcher would come to that conclusion and if they did since a researcher might have only been looking at the benefits they exclude the down side in their report.
Yes that is a way of researching as well. Looking one way and disregard the other outcomes. How else can bad medicine come on markets. Untested even. How is it possible that some medical treatments turn out to be bad for you. Well nobody looked at or wrote down the downsides. Some research.
Now beef is bad, hamburgers are the worst, but none will say it is true as they can’t be sure. None will admit that some of the additives or the rest of our lifestyle might have something to do with it. We are getting more lazy as more work is done from sitting down.
So I do ask why my brisk is becoming dangerous? What is wrong with a good steak once in a while. I don’t care how long they have been saying this in the end they still say Too Much Could cause.
Our worlds is changing I get that. We do more sitting down on our ass. Should we alter our eating pattern or maybe the way we are living. Because we should face the fact, sitting down Too Much Could cause a global problem in the end.
Listen carefully to the news. Too Much Could. Words to remember and make sure you don’t over do anything and you be just fine. I am not making any conclusions here it is just that we might want to read better or understand better what something means. Not everything is bad. Too much of something is, that I do get. Being To hasty is bad for you, To lazy is crap, To blunt.
Maybe one day if we know how to be moderate with what we consume there won’t be so much problems as we are causing by just saying.
And as much as killing the beef industry (burgers) might help our future saying beef will kill will also kill the small butcher around the corner. And I am sick of those extremists who just go taking things To far and pretty much demand their ideas onto me. It is Too Much to want to take away choice and force some rule onto us humans.
Always good to blow of some steam and start the week refreshed.
