How Many Times a Week Do You Eat Red Meat?

It is both Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Vegetarian Awareness Month, so the red meat question was due to come. Studies have found that eating red meat daily increases your risk of breast cancer by 56 percent. These days, I think you would be hard-pressed to find a woman eating red meat daily, but that statistic sure does get you thinking.

I might not be vegetarian, but lately I eat lower on the food chain for both health and environmental reasons. I eat red meat about twice a month and buy the grass-fed and finished meat from a cattle ranch less than 50 miles away (I know I am lucky to live in Northern California). How about you?
