Associated Press crappy science reporting strikes again.

Follow the above link and you will see:

Lots of red meat increases mortality risk

Um, really?  Cuz, I’m pretty sure that the risk of mortality is pretty stable at 100%.  Everybody dies.   I like this line too

“People whose diets contained more white meat like chicken and fish had lower risks of death.”

lower risks…of death.   Seriously, lower risks…of death.

  2. I remember thinking the same thing when that story came out. And the weirdest thing is that all major news stations (well, the ones I saw anyway) reported it just that way: lower risk of death. I think I even yelled at the TV.

  3. Maybe it should say, like, early death or something. See, people don’t realize death is real until someone or something shoves it in their face.
