It’s my understanding that a popular philosophy suggests that one reason red meat is unhealthy is that it takes so many days to digest that it ferments and releases some toxins into the body.

It is interesting that this was part of a case on the TV show “The Good Doctor” that was aired this week. The patient had a benign tumor that was blocking part of the digestive system and the carbs were fermenting in his belly.

But yeah, it’s a real thing. Rare but real. Gut disbiosis sucks.
