The Myth About Meat: What You Really Need to Know – Dr. John McDougall

Meat is ideal nutrition for my body, I once thought – after all, my own body is made of meat – like muscles, liver, kidneys, brain, and associated, more-or-less, edible substances, like fat, blood vessels, lymph nodes, tendons, nerves, bone, skin, etc.  Most of my friends still believe meat is essential for vigorous health and they don’t hesitate to tell me so.  I hear too often, “McDougall, if you ate a few more Tri-tips (a popular cut of beef) you’d be stronger, and be able to windsurf longer.”  I answer, “For these benefits, do I have to eat the blood vessels, too?”  They’re left speechless.
