What kind of allergy: Prick, blood tests not very accurate re: food allergies. Neg tests exclude an immune reaction (true allergy), but pos tests have less value. Best test is a double-blind food challenge (neither tester nor pt know which is which, until code is cracked at end of test); cumbersome.This excludes about 90% of "allergies". Other blood tests can be used, not "live-cell"-bogus, no "applied kinesiology". ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Many possibilities: If the meat had bad germs on it, or had toxic materials made by the germs, then one could get sick.

No: The fat on meat is the fat of an animal, which is saturated fat, which is not good for you. Saturated fats are known to raise your "bad" cholesterol and lower your "good" cholesterol. All fats have more calories than protein (the meat or muscle of the animal) and therefore can also make you fat faster too. Get lean cuts of meat and cut off the fatty edge! good question! ...Read more
Yes: There is no net nutritional value from either meat or milk. The "protein" in meat and "calcium" in milk is negated by the fats, cholesterol, and hormones/chemicals. You can get all the limited nutritional value from either meat or milk plus far more from fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and whole grains. Dozens of studies over the last 20 years have shown this to be true. ...Read more
