Annals of Internal Medicine Reveals Red Meat Studies' Ties to Meat Industry

A recent correction by a major scientific journal, The Annals of Internal Medicine, spotlighted unreported funding by the meat industry. Lead author and NutriRECS funder, Bradley C, Johnson neglected to, “indicate a grant from Texas A&M AgriLife Research to fund investigator-driven research related to saturated and polyunsaturated fats,” says the journal. While this correction may shed light on the author’s assertion that red and processed meat is not harmful to human health, it is yet another assault on public trust in nutrition science—which perhaps was the authors’ goal all along.
