As many of you may have seen, there have been several studies floating around about the evils of… Meat!  According to these studies, it would seem that Robb Wolf, Loren Cordain, Mark Sisson, and Chris Kresser, have been wrong and that meat may not be a beneficial component of a healthful diet.  These are some of the names at the top of the Paleo/Primal science front, and these studies seem to contradict everything they have been saying…  In order to be fully upfront, I think how they created the studies themselves was a bit flawed as it is easy to start out with a goal in mind and find the “evidence” to support a specific cause and in the process create a story that the media will flame across the internet.
