No one hasn't heard on the war being waged over genetically modified food stuffs, with both sides claiming the high ground, and justifying their arguments with various facts and figures.
As if GM products weren't enough to worry the average canivore, a 2009 study has shown a possible link between over-eating red meat and blindness. A University of Melbourne study showed that people who eat red meat 10+ times a week are 50percent more likely to suffer macular degeneration than those eating it 5 or less times a week. At first glance, the study could be dismissed as irrelevant - let's face it, 10 times a week? But 6 dinners, 3 lunches and snarlers at 2 breakfasts equals 11 times. It's not that difficult to get to 10 times.
The moral of the story is to watch your overall intake of not only red meat, but ANY food stuff. And the more processed a product it is, the more likely prolonged over-consumption could cause problems.
