Red meat can be part of a healthy diet
From Nancy Degner, executive director of Iowa Beef Industry Council; and Marla Bickel • Clearfield | One of your (Creston News Advertiser) subscribers (a cattle producer) actually dropped off the Sept. 14 newspaper with concerns about the articles in the health section. In particular, "Curious about the Mediterranean Diet," as well as, "Live Long and Prosper! (without red meat)" recommend reducing or eliminating the intake of red meat for health reasons. I represent Iowa's beef producers through their beef checkoff programs so would like to take this opportunity reply to the articles.
