"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Men and Markets Observed: Reminder: Red Meat


Reminder: Red Meat



UC San Francisco researcher and vegetarian diet advocate Dr. Dean Ornish said he gleaned a hopeful message from the study ( Red Meat Consumption Increases Risk of Early Death) .


"Something as simple as a meatless Monday can help," he said. "Even small changes can make a difference."

Additionally, Ornish said,

"What's good for you is also good for the planet."

In an editorial that accompanied the study, Ornish wrote that a plant-based diet could help cut annual healthcare costs from chronic diseases in the U.S., which exceed $1 trillion. 
Shrinking the livestock industry could also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and halt the destruction of forests to create pastures, he wrote.
