Meat is not healthy. Gorging isn't healthy. Mixing them? I have no idea.

Get off meat period. And don't gorge.

Anything in excess is unhealthy. Not sure where you are getting that meat is unhealthy. Got any scientific evidence for your claim or is this just some pseudoscience you came up with?

Gorging.......well, if they are maintaining a healthy weight, and not doing so by any insane means, like purging or exercising excessively, they could not be going that nutso.

Tripe!

Pick your definition. According to Oxford:

1. an edible lining of the second stomach of ruminant livestock, a type of organ meat.
2. nonsense, balderdash, gibberish, claptrap, of little to no value.

But I can't see why two kinds of meat at the same meal would be a worse kind of gorging than gorging only on one kind of meat.

There may be some religious-based prohibitions about eating certain foods together, such as beef and milk. But I can't imagine why two different kinds of meat, if neither was harmful by itself, would be toxic when combined.

I'm not sure he/she is obsessed. Heck, if I saw a person eat 10 drum sticks, pizza and a sub at ONE meal...it'd grab my attention too. That's a LOT of food, at one sitting.

Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say all meat, but there is definitely a helluva lot of scientific evidence that processed meat is unhealthy.

Several years ago, the World Health Organization classified processed meats including ham, bacon, salami and frankfurters as a Group 1 carcinogen (known to cause cancer) which means that there's strong evidence that processed meats cause cancer. Eating processed meat increases your risk of bowel and stomach cancer.

"Twenty-two experts from 10 countries reviewed more than 800 studies to reach their conclusions. They found that eating 50 grams of processed meat every day increased the risk of colorectal cancer by 18%. That’s the equivalent of about 4 strips of bacon or 1 hot dog. For red meat, there was evidence of increased risk of colorectal, pancreatic, and prostate cancer."

I'm not advocating that people stuff their faces with processed meat but main issue with the dichotomous (good/evil) view of foods is what leads to binges. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/25903250/ Many studies show this. Is it better to have your diet from lean meats than processed meats? Of course, but to eat processed foods once in a while is not going to be "bad" for you.

A couple points here:

I wouldn't say it's STRONG evidence. The study itself states "the evidence is not conclusive." AND "limited evidence"

The WHO saying meat causes cancer only demonstrates that many scientists do not understand the difference between correlation and causation

Study has all correlational data, no mechanistic data

Eating anything at anytime increases cancer risk https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3193565/

The WHO study says there is 18% risk of cancer. That is a relative risk, which means you have to compare it to something. What the study really says is that people who eat low amounts of meat vs people who eat high amounts of meat you are talking about an absolute risk of colon cancer increasing from 5.6% to 6.6% increase risk. That is a 1% absolute risk increase. Do you know what the absolute risk increase is with smoking? 2,500% absolute risk with smoking

What are the other variables of this study could have contributed to the cancer? People who eat meat are more likely to smoke, not exercise, and over consume calories in general.

Can processed meat cause cancer? Possibly, but correlation alone does not equal causation.

Gorging on a regular basis is unhealthy.
Gorging when you have an eating disorder is unhealthy.
Gorging if you have a gastric illness or disorder is unhealthy.

Gorging at the company all-you-can-eat picnic once a year might make you puke if you gorge so much that your stomach rejects the excess, but is otherwise not going to cause any lasting damage or contribute to any illness not directly related to that particular episode of gorging.

Gorging on meat is going to be no different from gorging on anything else. Unhealthy if regular, if you have an eating disorder, if you have a gastric illness/disorder. Not significantly concerning if you do it on special occasions - banquet weddings, company picnic, Christmas dinner, yearly cruise-ship smorgasbord.

I gorge when I buy my yearly box of Girl Scout Thin Mints. The whole box, gone in an hour. I have not or ever been diagnosed with peppermint cancer so I think I'm good.
