|To-do list for Meat:|
we now have health concerns under 3 different articles meat, red meat & beef. This is ... insane. There is a risk of contradictory statements in 3 separate instances and also any clean-up needs to be done thrice testing the patience of volunteer editors. I suggest a single separate page health effects of Meat which can merge the sub-sections from those 3 articles into the new page J mareeswaran (talk) 12:43, 26 November 2015 (UTC)
Since http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2015/pdfs/pr240_E.pdf is already in the article, I deleted it from the External links section — explaining that it was "In article." However, Achim Hering put it right back — declaring it a "legitimate link."

Problem with Text
This paragraph under the header "Consumption"
"According to the analysis of the FAO the overall consumption for white meat between 1990 and 2009 has dramatically increased. For example, poultry meat has increased by 76.6% per kilo per capita and pig meat by 19.7%. However, on the contrary, bovine meat has decreased from 10.4 kilograms (23 lb)/capita in 1990 to 9.6 kilograms (21 lb)/capita in 2009."
- No, the text is right; pork, especially pork loins, is often marketed as "white meat". You can read all about it here. FourViolas (talk) 23:57, 8 October 2016 (UTC)
- I totally accept that certain cuts of pork prepared in a certain manner are indeed marketed as white meat due to the health concerns of consuming excessive amounts of red meat but, from my understanding it's actual designation as a white meat is quite complex and controversial and that overall several organisations around the globe, such as the US Department of Agriculture for example, classify pork as a red meat. Perhaps this should be mentioned? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 10:48, 22 October 2016 (UTC)
