Woody Allen Was Right! Steak Is Healthy!

WAY back in 1973 Woody Allen did a movie called Sleeper, from which comes this little scene above. The idea was that he went to sleep for 200 years and thus has to learn how to deal with his new world that he wakes up in. Sorta a Woody Allen take on Rip Van Winkle.

And the things is that it does seem that he was right. Here’s the latest scientific research on eating steak for example:

Contrary to conventional wisdom, new research suggests that eating lean beef can reduce risk factors for heart disease. The DASH eating plan — Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension — is currently recommended by the American Heart Association to lower blood pressure and reduce risk of heart disease. People following the DASH diet are encouraged to eat fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and protein predominantly from plant sources. Lean beef can be enjoyed as the predominant protein source in a DASH-like diet, along with fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy, to effectively help lower blood pressure in healthy individuals, new research suggests.

Steak lowers your blood pressure? Exactly and entirely the opposite of what the doctors have been telling us for the past 40 years?

It rather makes you wonder what else they’ve been getting wrong as well, doesn’t it? Maybe sugar isn’t the root of all evil, salt doesn’t cause strokes, and vegetarianism is a pile of crock?
