Seriously debunked study. See the link Michael posted below, which not only has good debunking discussion, but links off to serious debunk/rebuttal posts.

I'm going to school right now to become a nurse researcher. The biggest thing I've learned so far is how little a study actually tells you. This isn't discussing red meat consumption for health-seeking, physically active people eating a paleo diet. This is about red meat consumption combined with multiple confounding lifestyle factors like sedentary lifestyle and tobacco/alcohol abuse.

When they publish numerous studies saying that red meat consumption in healthy, active, vegetable-eaters increases risk of heart disease, then I will pay attention.
