18 January 2019 | MEDIA RELEASE
calling the meat industry’s bluff on recent research, and
misleading and exaggerated claims of health benefits
associated with eating meat.
Following a recent trend in
the meat industry to commission science that makes their
sector look good, AgResearch in partnership with beef
producer Firstlight Foods are investigating whether certain
kinds of red meat can protect against heart disease. This is
despite The World Health Organisation and Bowel Cancer New
Zealand recommending a reduction in animal-sourced foods.
