Reassessing The Red Meat Risk

September 9, 2013

What if cutting red meat from your diet meant living a longer, healthier life? Would you cut out the juicy t-bones, chicken wings, even sushi? A number of long-term studies are revealing the benefits of limiting meat intake. Jim Braude and Margery Eagan asked callers about their willingness to make radical diet changes to live longer.

Also on BPR:

  • Dave Wedge and Joanna Weiss talked politics, including the latest over US action in Syria.
  • The Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III  was the guest for Open Mic.
  • How much does nighttime light affect sleep? A lot, it turns out. Jim and Margery discussed a study on city lights and sleep patterns of city dwellers.
  • Jared Bowen, host of WGBH's Open Studio, stopped by studio three to preview the Fall arts lineup.
