Summary: Mainstream dietary recommendations now commonly advise people to minimize the intake of red meat for health and environmental reasons. Most recently, a major report issued by the EAT-Lancet Commission recommended a planetary reference diet mostly based on plants and with no or very low (14 g/d) consumption of red meat. We argue that claims about the health dangers of red meat are not only improbable in the light of our evolutionary history, they are far from being supported by robust scientific evidence.

Key Takeaways

The Eat-Lancet Commission recommends very low meat consumption, but the evidence put forth in this article shows no robust evidence for this recommendation. Additionally the importance of red meat in our evolutionary past makes this claim improbable.
