Experts admitted surprise at the findings because so many other studies have linked red meat to physical health risks.

The team made the link after a study of 1000 Australian women.

Professor Felice Jacka, who led the research by Deakin University, Victoria, said: "We had originally thought that red meat might not be good for mental health but it turns out that it actually may be quite important.

"When we looked at women consuming less than the recommended amount of red meat in our study, we found that they were twice as likely to have a diagnosed depressive or anxiety disorder as those consuming the recommended amount.

"Even when we took into account the overall healthiness of the women's diets, as well as other factors such as their socioeconomic status, physical activity levels, smoking, weight and age, the relationship between low red meat intake and mental health remained.

I just don't know what to think. Red meat either kills me, makes me fat, makes me thin, halves depression likeliness (for women), or increases the risk if you eat too much.

I'm still gonna eat it, though.

I don't care if it makes you immortal or makes you HIV+, I will never stop eating red meat.

I love red meat. Pork chops!

Seriously though. I tried to strictly eat chicken for a diet, and I got tired of it on day two.

edit: Maybe it's from the fat content. Fat has been hypothesized to be the best "brain food".

Wait... I call shenanigans. Didn't red meat cause more cancer according to a study posted here last week? Cancer patients have a higher depression rate.

Even if red meat is bad for you all you gotta do is cook it and it will turn brown.

I actually really like chicken, but when I'm 'forced' to eat something often it grows old fast. Rotisserie chicken is fantastic.

But yea, beef is winning.

Elk is the best meat on the planet Earth. Whitetail deer is a close second.

I've had venison steak before, and it wasn't bad. I'd rather have beef or pork though.

I haven't eaten meat in 6 years, and I'm doin good. Haven't been depressed since i quit it, funnily enough.. Coincidence? Probably not. I dunno.......

This makes no sense to me...

Read meat is a pretty good source of tyrosine, and blah blah, long story short, your body needs tyrosine to create dopamine norepinephrine (which are implicated in depression). But then it makes no sense why chicken and fish wouldn't also have the same effects. I call shenanigans on this "study".

Well it doesn't say red meat = happy times for all, or vice versa. Just some statistics we can try and analyze.

well of course, if you're so morally deprived as to not be bothered by eating meat, you're more likely to not worry or be anxious about things in general.
