A bit late, but thank you for putting together this series. I found it extremely thorough and still accessible for a layman like myself. Shared it on my blog awhile back; hoping my readers have enjoyed it as much as I did.

My guess why studies wrongly comes to the conclusion that meat is unhealthy is because the meat isn't eaten correctly.

By this I primarily mean:
1) The animal we eat itself eat bad unnatural stuff. Mostly soy nowadays it seems.
2) We eat only selected parts so we get it unbalanced. We cook it with bones and gelatin to rarely. This gives a wrong balance of amino acids and minerals among other things.

Feel free to come with counter-arguments.
