    Is Red Meat Good or Bad for You?

Traditional populations like the Masai have eaten much more red meat than the average Westerner but remained in excellent health (1). However, the meat consumed today is different than the meat people ate in the past. Back in the day, animals roamed free and ate grass, insects or other foods natural to them.

    The Post-Covid-19 Surprising Contingencies

    Can anyone truly proclaim accurately the exact strategies that will work post-covid-19? Humanly speaking, I think not!
