Meat Consumption Connected to Asthma and Hayfever

New Australian research shows a link between meat-rich diets and two common illnesses.

The Nutrition Journal recently published research based in Australia, which indicated that meat consumption is associated with the development of asthma and hayfever. The researchers found in a cross-sectional study of more than 150,000 Australian men and women that as meat consumption increased, participants’ chance of being diagnosed with asthma and hayfever increased 10 to 25 percent. The researchers also argue that the meat-based western diet is too high in saturated fat and calories (and lacking in antioxidants). Meat reduction has also proven to extend lifespan and prevent different types of cancers from developing. Additionally, plant-based foods have been observed to reverse chronic illnesses.
