    In the Spirit of Wellness,

    ... This is a serious one Family. Candidly speaking, I was always somewhat cautious about getting the extra cheese with my sandwich. But like everyone else, and every so often, I'd give in and say yes to: "would you like cheese on that" ... But not anymore, not after reading this :facepalm:

    Doctor's Take
    So will that charcuterie and cheese plate kill you? If it's once in a while, you probably don't have much to worry about. While this study found that routinely eating too much animal-based protein could be a problem, it does not mean that meat and cheese are poison. On the contrary, these foods can provide many vital nutrients that are not easily found in other foods.

    Too much meat and cheese may be a recipe for disaster, according to a new study that links the consumption of animal-based protein to an increased risk of early death for people in their 50s and early 60s.

    The study of more than 6,000 American adults found those between the ages of 50 and 65 with diets high in animal protein were 74 percent more likely to meet an untimely end than those who consumed less animal protein or got their protein from non-animal sources.

    For deaths due to cancer, the risk was four times higher, according to the study.
