Red Meat 1, WHO 0

You may have seen the news on the WHO report condemning red meat.

From theysaidwhat.net:

Number of deaths attributable to eating processed meat, according to the World Health Organization (WHO): 34,000

That’s an annual risk of approximately 1 in 200,000

Number of people struck by lightning annually: 240,000

It’s important to have a point of reference when evaluating numbers like these.
