If You Eat Steak Well Done, 1) You Have Bad Taste 2) You're Going TO Die Sooner - Viral Thread

If You Eat Steak Well Done, 1) You Have Bad Taste 2) You're Going TO Die Sooner - Viral Thread:

'via Blog this'

    You can never fully trust a person until you know how they like their steak, and chances are if they’re of the ‘well done’ variety then you’re going to have your doubts. 
Whenever my dad and I go for dinner and he orders an “extremely well done” steak I see the look of judgement on the waiters face as they aggressively jot down his order before going back into the kitchen and getting a bollocking from the chef as they relay my dad’s request. I used to think this was just your basic meat based snobbery and that people should live and let live, but it turns out those judgemental waiters and outraged chefs might be in the right here. 

According to research published by the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the United States, eating a diet that’s high in gylcotoxins could be seriously damaging to your health and accelerating your aging process – so basically if you eat a ton of ‘well done’ beef you’re going to be sporting grey hairs and hip problems in no time. 
ScienceAlert reported that the study initially found that mice raised on a diet high in gylcotoxins “were more likely to develop dementia-like cognitive and movements as they aged than mice fed a low gylcotoxin diet.” These same mice also showed an increased amount of amyloid beta proteins in their brain – the same proteins often found in people with Alzhimer’s disease. 
The researchers then monitored the amount of gylcotoxins in the blood of 93 New Yorkers aged over 60 for a period of 9 months, and the results were worryingly similar. They found that participants who ate more over-cooked (because that is essentially what ‘well done’ translates to) meat had higher levels of gylcotoxins in their blood over the course of the study than those who ate their meat a little rarer. 
Admittedly this study is pretty small, but the researchers believe there is enough evidence to suggest that eating your meat a little more raw could reduce your risk of developing dementia and other metabolic symptoms as you age. 

Michael Woodward, a dementia researcher from Austin Health in Australia told Dementia News: “These studies are only preliminary and more evidence is required in the form of large scale epidemiological studies before we start recommending how to best cook our food.”
“However, this study further adds to a growing body of evidence that suggests what you eat – for example highly fatty, fried and processed foods can be linked to diseases such as dementia, diabetes and cardiovascular disease,” he added. 
I’m not going to tell you to start eating your steak rare to medium-rare, but I am going to send this article to my dad
