The widely leaked report is finally published. No more than the equivalent of one lamb chop or a bacon butty or a big mac each day if you want any chance of staying healthy.
Yvonne Bishop-Weston Nutritionist London says
"The government seems to be suggesting we should be Plantarian for at least 2 meals a day. Research confirms benefits to health really start to kick in at least 8 portions of fruit and veg a day.
There is still no safe limit for meat consumption set. This advice is just setting maximum advisory levels the inference is that less is best.
I find it quite ironic that this is advice on iron levels yet in clinic it's frequently meat eaters I find with inadequate iron levels not vegetarians"
The evidence seems to be mounting against meat as a useful part of a nutritious diet in modern society.
